Considering increasing development of nano-technology science and its wide use in most industries, textile industry was not excluded and manifested its capability in all fields accompanied with other sciences and achieved remarkable progress. Since interdisciplinary scientific research causes developing sciences and is attended by many specialists, in this research a beneficial step was provided applying dress design and textile chemistry sciences for more productivity of interdisciplinary discussions. In this study, the design of the drivers’ uniform and their self-cleaning property were analyzed. In a way that; first, cotton fabric samples were treated using TiO2 nanoparticles and poly carboxylic agent. Then, cotton fabric self-cleaning amount were evaluated and optimized. Based on the obtained results, drivers’ uniform design with self-cleaning property against chemical and natural stains was gained, utilizing optimized amounts of TiO2 nanoparticles. Therefore, the dress design applying nanotechnology discussions was effectively capable of having self-cleaning property in order to discolor natural color stains like tomato, sour cherry water, chocolate milk, gasoil, grease, oil, and chemical blue (C.I. Reactive Blue 19) and green (C.I. Direct Green 1) regarding scientific principles.
