It belongs to family Fabaceae, commonly known as vadataram. The dye has good scope in the commercial dyeing of cotton in textile industry. So in present investigation, H2O2 bleached cotton fabrics were dyed with different chemical mordants. Dyeing was carried out by pre mordanting, post mordanting and simultaneous mordanting.
