Abstract: <span style="mso-bidi-font-weight:bold" lang="EN-GB">In ancient India people used natural dyes to stain woollen products. These dyes were obtained from roots, leaves and bark.<span style="mso-ansi-language:DE" lang="DE"> Although the plant species give certain dye due to the presence of colourant in it but the colour could be varied by adding various mordants. In the present study, <i style="mso-bidi-font-style:normal"><span style="mso-bidi-font-weight: bold" lang="EN-GB">Myrica esculenta </span></i><span style="mso-bidi-font-weight: bold" lang="EN-GB">Buch.-Ham., <i style="mso-bidi-font-style:normal">Pinus roxburghii</i> Sarg. and <i style="mso-bidi-font-style:normal">Terminalia chebula</i> Retz. <span style="mso-ansi-language:DE" lang="DE">have selected <span style="mso-bidi-font-weight:bold" lang="EN-GB">as natural dyes on the basis of their traditional uses. <span style="mso-ansi-language:DE" lang="DE">The <i style="mso-bidi-font-style:normal">p</i>H and ODs of dyeing solutions was measured before and after dyeing. Colour fastness was also determined. It has been found that the ODs decreased after dyeing. </span></span></span></span></span></span>
