An innovational structure with auxetic effect was designed from inspiration of a re-entrant honeycomb structure firstly proposed by Gibson et.al. In the newly designed structure, yarns were used to replace the straight and tilted ribs of re-entrant honeycomb structure in order to achieve negative Poisson's ratio. The compression testing was carried out in the vertical direction of the structure using an INSTRON 5566 tester to understand its deformation behavior. The results show that the difference in bending stiffness between the warp and weft yarns is the main reason for getting negative Poisson's ratio of the structure.
