Textile dyeing plays a very important role in textile processing industry. Finding of researches conducted in recent years showed that chemicals used in synthetic dyes may contain toxic elements such as benzidine, aryl amine, lead, cadmium, zinc, mercury, formaldehyde, pentachlorophenol and halogen carrier etc.. Use of such dyes in textiles is associated with environmental degradation as well as hazards on health of human and other living beings viz creating skin cancer, skin irritation, lungs problem and allergy. Due to such negative impact of synthetic dyes researches in the field of textile dyeing has been focused on substitute preparation of synthetic dyes. Dyes of natural origin are environment friendly in nature and have no side effect on skin. The present study deals with the extraction of natural dye from spice and its application on textile fabric. Dye was extracted in acidic medium. For improving dyeability of textile substrate, mordanting of the fabric was done with alum mordant. In experiment, pre, post and simultaneous mordanting techniques were used for mordanting of the fabric. Attempt has been made to investigate the overall colour fastness properties of dyed textile material.
