Abstract


The present study was undertaken to use corolla of Nyctanthes arbortristis L. as a natural colour for dyeing and painting of cotton and silk with Kalamkari technique using bamboo stick. From the present work it can be concluded that cotton and silk painted and dyed with Corolla of Nyctanthes arbortristis Linn exhibited fair to excellent wash and sunlight fastness. Further four different dresses were designed and evaluated for fabric elements and colour which rated very good to excellent by the panel judges. Therefore the study suggest the use of  Nyctanthes arbortristis Linn corolla extract as very good option for yellow, and yellow orange colour as a value addition to fashion fabric and ultimately in eco-friendly clothing.

Key words:
