Abstract: A wild type bacterial strain isolated from soil rhizosphere has been used to produce amylase and pectinase in a common production media. Single step combined enzymatic desizing and scouring of grey cotton fabric using these enzymes have been done without further purification. The formulated media containing both the enzymes gives higher weight loss and absorbency compared to the commercial enzymatic desizing. The absorption coefficient after treatment with formulated media is found to be similar to that observed after the conventional desized-scoured fabric treatment. It is observed that the study would improve textile processing in terms of ecofriendliness coupled with conservation of time, energy and chemicals.
