Natural fibres are the most potential material to be used as alternative fibres to replace the synthetic fibres used in composite materials as it abundantly available in our country. An experimental work was carried out in order to determine the tensile strength of natural fibres composite plates made of banana, sugarcane, and bamboo. The influence of combination among natural fibres which are composites plates of banana-sugarcane and banana-bamboo on tensile strength were investigated. The effect of fibres orientation with different angles of 00 and 450 on tensile strength was also investigated. The natural fibres were fabricated as composite plates with size of 25 mm x 230 mm and thickness less than 3 mm. From tensile test, it was found that the natural fibres composite plates with angle of 00 produces higher tensile strength compared to natural fibres composite plates with angle of 45˚. Moreover, the combination of natural fibres of bananasugarcane and banana-bamboo produces higher tensile strength rather than composite plates of banana, sugarcane and bamboo itself.
