Article's abstract:

The large number of publications in the field of extraction, purification, modification, and process optimization of natural dyes and their application on textiles demonstrates the revival of natural dyes on textile coloration. The use of natural dyes is growing in popularity because of the quality of the natural dyestuff obtained, the environmental compatibility of the dyes and the substantial minimization of processing costs. Natural dyes are extracted from different parts of the plants such as bark, leaf, root, fruit, seed, and flower that contain coloring materials like tannin, flavonoids, quinonoids, etc. In this paper, it has been tried to give the latest scientific overview on extraction and application of natural colorants on textiles processing. The benefits and limitations of application on textiles along with the different methods of extraction of natural colorants have been discussed. Moreover, the examples of early applications of natural dyes on textile processing have been reviewed.
