Comparison between Cotton and Silk Fabric Dyed With Turmeric Natural Colorant

Abstract: This study was intended to assess the comparison on the color fastnessof cotton and silk fabrics dyed with turmericnatural colorant by usingthree mordants.Since textiles have no affinity towards turmeric, so mordantingtreatment of selectedfabric samples wascarried out at three conditions,with the alum, ferrous sulphate and alumferrous sulphatecombination.In this work, turmeric provided better color fastness yieldson silk comparing to cotton dyed fabric. Among three mordants, alum and alum-ferrous sulphatecombination rendered better color fastness properties on silk dyed fabric comparing to ferrous sulphate mordant itself.On the other hand, more color fastnesswas resulted from the ferrous sulphate and alum-ferrous sulphate combination in cotton dyed fabrics. Hence,this research work was imperative to select the suitable mordant to be used in the textile dyeing with turmeric natural colorant.
