Abstract:
The present study was carried out to find the colourfastness properties of mulberry silk fabric. Mulberry silk fabric was dyed using natural dye extracted from tamarind (Tamarindus indica L.) seed dye. Two mordants namely alum as a metallic mordant and aloe vera as a natural mordant were used for this study. The surface of the dyed silk fabric was then enriched by using an eco-printing method. The dyed and printed samples were evaluated visually and with the help of greyscale for determining the colourfastness properties such as colourfastness to Sunlight, colourfastness to Washing, colourfastness to Crocking or Rubbing (Dry and Wet), colourfastness to Pressing (Dry and Wet), colourfastness to Perspiration (Acidic and Alkaline), which exhibited fair to good ratings with noticeable stained to negligible stained.
