Composite materials have been in use since ages. The introduction of chemical revolution changed the face of composite development. However, the environmental impact of polymer composites is becoming a problem that needs to be addressed properly. This brings the situation to revive the natural composites back to day to day use by replacing them in place of synthetic composites. An attempt has been made to study about the behavior of natural composites namely aloe vera and Jute. The following mechanical properties namely ultimate tensile strength, flexural strength and impact strength as well as thermal properties namely thermal conductivity and heat deflection temperature are calculated for jute as well as aloe vera. Water absorption test is carried out to study the effect of exposure of natural composites to water. Thermogravimetric analysis is done to understand the weight loss due to temperature. Finally, all the properties are to be compared with jute and aloe vera hybrid composites.
