Nano fibers is a fiber or material with a diameter which is few nano-meters (usually, around 1 billionth of a meter or 1 x 10-8 cm). 150,000 strands of a nano-fiber can fit across a human hair. Nano fibers can improve a lot filtration efficiency on a coat.
Nano technology is a complex technology that involves nano-size materials and combines science such as biology, chemistry and physics, and engineering. It has a lot of applications in industries. Examples should be in cosmetics, nano engineering, clothing with nano fabrics, medicine too.
Nap is the raised fuzzy, fur-like touch created on certain fabrics, when fiber ends extend from the basic fabric structure to the fabric surface. The fabric can be napped on either one or both sides. Nap can refer even to other surfaces that look like the surface of a napped cloth, such as the surface of a felt or beaver hat.

The most common colors done with this techniques include Indigo, Cochineal, Lac, Logwood, Madder, Munjeet, Catechu, Brazilwood, Osage Orange, Fustic, Weld, Tannin, and Quercitron.
Natural-Fiber are type of fibers which came out from natural elements, and are normally comprised of cellulose. Natural-fibers include the following: Bamboo, Coir, Cotton, Flax, Hemp, Jute, Kenaf, Linen, Manila, Pina, Raffia, Ramie, and Sisal. They can be used as a component of composite materials, where the orientation of fibers impacts the properties.
Net is an open mesh fabric of rayon, nylon, cotton, or silk; made in a variety of geometric-shaped meshes of different sizes and weights, matched to various end-uses. The net is made by knotting the intersections of thread or cord to form the mesh.
