Abstract :

Dyeing of cotton fabric with natural colorants extracted from tea leaves had been investigated. The dyeing process was carried out using different techniques with different solvents and applied on Giza 86 Egyptian cotton fabric using some mordents and gelatin modification. The dyeing properties on cotton fabric had been evaluated and comparative study values were investigated. The results obtained revealed that microwave technique using ionized water (DI) with ferrous sulphate as pre mordant after gelatin treatment gave the higher values compared with the other techniques, and the different solvents and mordants.
