A novel planar inverted-F antenna (PIFA), incorporating a triangular Sierpinski gasket, is presented. The used conducting textile and polyester fleece allow easy on-body integration and simple practical fabrication. It shows dual-band response, combining a 16% band at 2.45%GHz with an upper 12% band at 5.2%GHz. The broadside gain is 3.1%dBi. Good agreement between calculated and measured data is observed.
