The growing awareness of environmental issues and damage has generated renewed interest in the use of eco-friendly natural dyes for natural fibres such as cotton. With that in mind, the dyeing of cotton fabrics with Syzygium cordatum natural dye using two organic electrolytes as mordants was investigated. Dyeing was carried out by either pre-mordanting, post mordanting or simultaneous mordanting. A reddish brown colour was obtained from the plant and it showed good colourfastness to washing rubbing and perspiration.

Keywords : Natural dyes, Syzygium cordatum, Colourfastness.
