To rescue from the harmful effects of those chemical wastes the research work was focused on eco friendly natural dyes. The best in eco-friendly fabrics, “Organic cotton” was selected for the study. Extracted natural dyes from the selected natural resource (Eclipta Leaves, Achras Zapota Leaves and Nyctanthes Arbortristis Flowers) were applied onto organic cotton yarn with no using of chemicals & mordents. Enzymatic Bio wash has been further done to the naturally dyed organic cotton fabric. The colorfastness properties of natural dyed organic cotton fabric were observed and concluded.
