The article discusses developments in the dye industry. After the global consciousness about the use of eco-friendly dyes due to the hazardous and carcinogenic effect of many synthetic dyes, the European Union has proposed to ban several textile dyes. This led to the revival of natural dyeing techniques as alternative to synthetic dyes. Several factors hinder the use of natural techniques though, including the availability of raw materials for natural dyes and the crude and laborious process of extraction. A method of obtaining yellow natural dye from the sap or heart wood of the jackfruit plant is being explored as a positive alternative. The dyeing principles involving the jackfruit wood is discussed by the authors of the article.
