ABSTRACT

Natural dyes have been used as colorants in food, leather as well as textile since prehistoric times. These dyes are obtained from vegetable and animal matter with no or very little chemical processing. Turmeric spice is used in making natural dye. In this study dye was developed by using three concentration levels from turmeric powder. Then apply a dye on silk fabric after binding it with vinegar. The dye’s colour concentration and color fastness after 15 washes. This research is based on quantitative research. This is experimental research. In this study, access the color concentration on different stages and fastness after 15 washes. In a beaker 1 tablespoon were added and boiled in 100 ml distilled water at 100oC for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes the solution was filtered. Then 15 ml vinegar were added to retain color put the solution in steam soaping machine. The sample were died then rinse the sample and dry it under shadow to penetrate color. Then the sample was washed with tap water for 2 minutes to remove extra color. After this wash all the dyed samples in machine. Put 10 litter water and 50gm detergent and wash for 15 minutes. Same procedure would be followed in level 2 with 2 tablespoons of turmeric. And in level 3 same procedure would be followed with 3 tablespoons of turmeric. In results it shows that in all three level there is a difference while comparing the levels with each other. But while compare to level 1 to its own washes it gives same color fastness on each wash. Same results was showed for level 2 and level 3.
