Abstract

Natural dyes are one of the most important sources derived from plants, invertebrates or minerals. These dyes are eco-friendly in nature. Research has shown that synthetic dyes are more suspected to release harmful chemicals that are allergenic and carcinogenic in nature and also effects human health. Nature has blessed us with many valuable varieties of dye yielding plants. Rosa Centifolia is one of them. It was found that after being offering flowers to the deity, the valuable flower was being immersed in the river or dumped at the available place which creates an ecological imbalance and other health hazards. Hence the present research work was undertaken to extract natural colour from the floral waste (Rosa Centifolia). The dyeing was carried out on pre-mordant mulberry silk fabric. Further optimum conditions for dyeing were evaluated. On the basis of result it was found that temperature also significantly influence the dyeing process.
