Abstract: Antimicrobial textile is a very important field for new investigations. The two aspects need be taken into account at the time of such investigations into the protection of the textile itself from damage caused by microorganisms, and that of the textile user against pathogenic or odour causing microorganisms. However, it is known that some materials which have really good antimicrobial activity are harmful or toxic and cannot be used for health care or medical application, due to which the necessity to find new natural and human friendly antimicrobial active materials and methods of how to increase the antimicrobial activity of textile is still open. One of the ways to solve this problem is usage of natural antimicrobial agents such as chitosan, plant extracts and others. Investigations on the usage of amber micro particles in the formation of a polyamide 6 nanoweb via electrospinning and on the antimicrobial activity thereof is analysed in this paper. The results show the antimicrobial activity of the material with Baltic amber investigated and the possibility of developing functional antimicrobial textile with amber micro particles via electrospinning
