Abstract: Every herb can be used to make dye. Herbal dyes being natural tend to be softer and their range of tones is very pleasant. At present total market of herbal dyes is to the tune of US $ 1 billion and is growing tremendously at the rate of 12%per annum. Per capita consumption of dyes is 400g to 15 kg in developed and underdeveloped countries for their utility in paints, inks, textiles, polymers, etc. India is a major exporter of herbal dyes mostly due to ban on production of some of the synthetic dyes and intermediates in the developed countries due to pollution problem. Nature has gifted us more than 500 colour yielding plants. The present paper is an aid to a collective enquiry into the Indian dye yielding plants, their parts and chemical constituents.
