The negative effects of sunlight has been known associated with the development of skin cancer, skin aging, immune suppression, and eye diseases. The UV Index is an important parameter to alert people about the need to adopt protective measures. This paper reports a design concept and techniques developed in engineering UV indexable two-layer narrow woven fabrics. The fabrics were made using a type of photochromic yarn and three reference yarns with static colours indicating the level of UV intensity based on the measurement of colour change of the photochromic yarn under different level of UV intensities.
