Abstract

This research will be focused on the utilization of henna leaves for the dyeing in cotton fabrics. The formulation of henna dye is capable for the dyeing on the cotton replace the chemical dye. Moreover this research was conducted to reduce the usage of chemical dyes that contact the human body with the natural pigment using extraction method. However the usage of the synthetic dyes can reduce the harmful effect to the human health and environment. The henna leaves have various advantages because it is non carcinorgenic and environment friendly. The composition of natural dyes for the dyeing process on the cotton fabrics are 10g, 20g, 30g, 40g, 50g, 60g, 70g and 80g with 40ml of distilled water. The physical test involved was viscosity (ASTM D445-18). Furthemore, the 80g of henna leaves with 40ml of distilled water have higher viscosity compared to the other concentrations.
