|Abstract:||In recent years research in the field of textiles is focused on the sources of natural dyes. The dye yielding potential of flowers of Jatropha integrimma Jacq. was evaluated and results are presented for the first time on this plant. The colour shades, mordant wise colour change and fastness to washing, rubbing and perspiration were studied. The results revealed that the dye extracted from these flowers give good shades with satisfactory fastness to light, washing, crocking and perspiration on silk.|
