Use of textile products as interior finishing material, the role of designers in specification process, textile fiber classification and fire related fiber properties are defined. Textile flammability, toxicity and the results of textile fires are also discussed. Turkish, European and International standards on textile flammability are given. From the point of preventing textile flammability the fire retardant treatments are defined. Through the all information stated in this thesis, this specific case is analyzed upon the samples through an experiment and observation. The results are evaluated through the context of the thesis and further studies are proposed.
