Abstract

Silk is the important versatile textile material being used for various delicate and formal enriched utilities. Traditionally for long period silk has been selected and colored with natural sources which would add values to the materials with respect to their original properties. Most of the natural sources have their inherent property add additional values to the silk materials. In this work the mulberry silk fabric is treated with recovered protein from sericin together with natural finishing sources like aloevera, amla and nochi in different combinations followed by coloring with few selected natural sources. The silk fabrics after these applications weresubjected for testing K/S value, fastness properties, absorbency, objective assessmentand SEM study. The results from these tests are impressive and positive suitable for the respective applications in the textile and garment utilities.
