Smita Bhuyan, Lizamoni Chungkrang and Nabaneeta Gogoi
Natural products such as fiber and dyes extracted from different natural sources have a wide range of applications in the field of textiles. Consumers are looking for eco-friendly and biodegradable textiles to preserve the natural environment. There are many fiber and dye yielding plants which have the potential for use in textile applications. Exploring the different fields of chemistry helps to produce, a perfect piece of textile material. All natural sources have different properties and varieties of color inherent in different parts of the plant to produce a variety of subtle shades. A highly specialized field of textile chemistry applies the principles of chemistry for the production of clothing and accessories to create marketable new products or to modify existing products. The paper attempt to review the chemistry of different structures of natural fiber and dye for application in various fields of textiles.
