Today the use of composite material in the manufacturing field is increasing day by day. The composite material consists of two or more different forms of material. The natural fiber like sisal, hemp, jute, flax, and silk plays an important role to enhance the properties of composite material. In the present work, polyester is used with natural fiber i.e. sisal and hemp. The composite material (Polyester & Sisal fiber and Polyester & Hemp fiber) having weight percentage 90%&10% respectively. The fibers are treated with NaOH and water solution. The specimen of composite material is manufactured by hand layup method. The mechanical properties such as tensile, flexural and shear are calculated and analyzed. In this conclusion sisal is better than hemp in tensile strength, hemp is better than sisal in flexural and shear strength.
