Green composites made of biodegradable matrices and lignocellulosic fibers are receiving growing attention from both academia and industries. Despite a wide literature can be found about mechanical behavior of such kind of composites, at the best of our knowledge, only limited information is available about their creep behavior [1] and no papers have been yet done on the effect of ultraviolet exposition. The tensile creep behavior at 40 °C of PLA based composites, containing flax and jute twill weave woven fabrics, produced through compression molding, was investigated. As preliminary characterization, quasi-static tensile tests were carried out on virgin and UV aged composites
