A textile integrated antenna made of a dipole and split ring resonators (SRR) produced by embroidery is under consideration. A size reduction of the antenna was achieved by means of a resonance of the SRRs and connection loss was lessened by using a copper wire for the dipole. Embroidery for SRR fabrication with metallic yarn was studied in order to achieve a minimal distance between concentric rings, and an antenna was designed and produced. The manufactured antenna showed a double band operation at 1.8 and 2.2 GHz with a measured gain of 0 and -3.1 dBi, respectively.
