A comparative study on colourfastness properties of Manjistha/Moduka flower dyes
Author(s): Z Shahanaz and Dr. Shabiya Thaseen
The general interest of researchers in the application of Natural dyes is found to be increasing for obvious reasons. These dyes cannot be considered to be competing neither in volumes nor necessarily in properties as substitutes for synthetic dyes. The main purpose of this research was to compare and study the Masulipatnam block printing done with natural dyes such as Manjistha/Moduka flower using fixation with Banana stem juice and catechu dye using fixation with alum on Cotton/Forest wood union fabric. The test to evaluate the colour fastness properties were done by subjecting the samples to Wet Pressing, Dry Crocking, Acid Perspiration. On the basis of colour fastness test it was found that Manjistha/Moduka flower fabrics showed best results compared to Catechu dyed fabrics.
