Application of madder natural dye on banana fiber
Author(s): Pintu Pratap Singh and Dhirendra Sharma
The use of natural dyes and natural finishes on textiles has become a matter of importance because of the increased environmental awareness to avoid hazardous synthetic dyes (soluble and Non water soluble) and synthetic chemicals. Dyeing of combined scoured & bleached banana fiber with Madder natural dye at 90 °C for 60 min at neutral pH at 10%, 30% and 50% concentration of the dye on the weight of banana fiber using pre- without and post-mordant dyeing techniques using alum, stannous chloride and ferrous sulphate mordants. Treated fiber showed a substantial increase in colour depth (K/S) and adequate wash, light and rubbing fastness properties without and with mordanted and dyed banana fiber.
