A vast array of colorants obtained from natural sources such as plants, insects/animals and microbes have been scrutinized in recent past for their use in different kinds of applications. Research into new natural dyes sources along with eco-friendly, robust and cost-effective technologies for their processing and application have greatly aided in widening the scope of natural dyes in various traditional and advanced application disciplines. This paper contains application of natural dye extracted from pomegranate peel using ethanol water mixture as a solvent in soxhlet apparatus on cotton cloth. Different tests were conducted to observe the strength of dyeing and presented the results.
