Author(s): C Saranya and R Rajakumar
At present days there is increasing awareness among people towards natural dyes, because they are non-toxic, non-allergic to skin. Natural dyes have better bio-degradability and higher compatibility with the environment. The dyes extracted from vegetable, minerals or insects are used in textiles. A dye powder is extracted from Tecoma, a bright yellow flower which is grown throughout the world and also be easily available. Alum, Copper sulphate and ferrous sulphate are used as a mordant for Tecoma flower dye. Mordanting techniques like pre Mordanting, post mordanting and simultaneously Mordanting can be used to obtain different shades of colors. The present study was undertaken on application of Tecoma dye in viscose fabric by using various mordants and mordanting techniques to get different shades and compare the physical properties of dyed samples.
