The trials were under taken to screen print silk fabric with Butea monosperma flower dye extract using natural thickening against i.e. cassia seed gum and mango kernel gum with two mordant. Copper Sulphate and Ferrous Sulphate was selected for the experiments. The screen printed samples were studied for color fastness properties and CIE LAB values. Results of silk screen printed samples with both the mordant exhibited very good to excellent results fastness rating for light, washing, rubbing and perspirations. The results revealed that silk fabric can successfully screen printed with natural dye and natural thickening agents
