The article presents a study which attempts to dye cotton sample with Arecanut extract. During the study, the researchers conducted a mordanting by mixing two mordants in different proportions and to asses the fastness properties of dyed cotton. The results indicate that there is no change in colour of all the dyed cotton samples to dry and almost all samples to wet rubbing.
