Abstract: India has a hoary tradition in the arts of handloom weaving and vegetable dyeing. The knowledge of sourcing of the plant materials, from which the dyes are obtained, is being passed on so far purely by way of tradition, from generation to generation. So, also is the art of extraction of the dyes and their application to the yarn/cloth. Vegetable dyeing is very ecofriendly and has several unique characteristics. The paper pleads for the preservation of this ancient art and for a greater thrust on R & D in all the relevant fields of raw material, extraction, application and production of the vegetable dyes.
