Paper Title
Effects of Selected Mordants and dyeing of Cotton cloth with Natural Dye Extracted From Red calico plant (amaranths leaves).
  Shikha Singh Rajpoot,  Piyush Kumar Thakur

Conventionally the dyeing of natural dyes from plant materials was done by boiling which requires longer time, higher temperature and metallic mordant to get good color fastness. Use of metallic mordants for dyeing posed some cruel effect to ecosystem. The Necessity of new natural dyes sources along with eco-friendly, easy availability and cost-effective technologies their processing and application have greatly aided in widening the scope of natural dyes in various traditional and advanced application disciplines. Numerous plant species are found to have an important role in our day-to-day life. In the present work, the Red calico plant (amaranths leaves) were used for the extraction of dye, dyeing of the selected fabrics at optimized conditions, using combination of mordant and evaluate the resultant colour fastness of the selected dyed samples to washing, rubbing, and light.

Keywords- Red calico plant (Alternanthera), Natural Dye , Colorfastness, Extraction, Mordant.
