Botanical Extract Dyes

Botanical Extract Dyes are derived from natural resources and based upon their source of origin, these are broadly classified as plant, animal, mineral, and microbial dyes although plants are the major sources of Botanical Extract Dyes. As interest in Botanical Extract Dyes grew, information from the old literature was collected and traditional dyeing practices in different regions were documented and compiled by various researchers. Adrosko published a book on natural dye sources and processes for their application to textiles at the household level. DOBAG, the Turkish acronym for Natural Dye Research and Development Project, launched in Turkey with German assistance in cooperation with Marmara University, Istanbul in 1981 was a big success in reviving the lost art of producing naturally dyed carpets. Natural dyeing processes of India were documented in a book by Mohanty et al. Chandramouli also published a book on natural dyeing processes of India. Dyes traditionally used in the Scottish Highlands were reviewed by Grierson et al. Buchanan presented a detailed account of dye plants used for natural dyeing of textiles such as alkanet, annatto, chamomile, coreopsis, madder, safflower, indigo, and so on, and methods for dyeing of textiles with these. Later information on various dye-yielding plants, methods to grow them, harvesting dye parts, methods to dye wool and silk with them, and color shades obtained were also detailed by her. Research efforts by individuals and organizations and exchange of available information through various seminars, symposiums, workshops, and research articles have now revealed various natural dye sources. Plenty of information about different sources of Botanical Extract Dyes is now available in the literature. A brief account of the potential dye resources according to their source of origin is listed below.
