Abstract: Neem (Azadirachta indica) is well known medicinal plant in Indian subcontinent. It has wide spectrum of biological activity as antifeedant and acts as insecticides. An attempt has been made to study efficacy of Neem extract as anti-moth agent and natural dye. Results reveal that anti-moth efficacy of bark extract found better than neem leaves extract dyed fabric. In both case stannous chloride mordanted fabrics shows anti-moth properties similar to commercial anti-moth agents due to formation of organotin compounds. Both leaves and bark extracts also have very good dye ability for wool fabric. However, fastness to light and washing are improved after mordanting.
