Coloration of fabric is a major process in the production of textile material. In the present study, natural dye was extracted from Spinach leaves by using ethanol as solvent system for extraction. The overall process was carried out by mordanting the fabrics through pre-mordanting and post-mordanting system. It was done by using the natural mordant i.e. pomegranate rind as well as synthetic mordant i.e. stannous chloride and copper sulphate either by individually or in combination in the ratio of 9:1, 7:3 and 5:5 for each fiber and method of mordanting. The Different tone and shades were obtained on wool fibers in control and in combination of mordants such as pomegranate + stannous chloride and pomegranate + copper sulphate. Depending upon the mordants used the colour obtained on textile from Spinach extract may give different shades. The shades generated in natural mordant as well as synthetic mordants were all unique and different than control. The dyes produced were dyed on wool fabric and tested for their color fastness to washing properties.
