Design and development of canvas trousers using sustainable natural dye
Ahsanullah University of Science and Technology, Dhaka, Bangladesh
Keywords: sustainability; natural dye; canvas fabric; fashionable; eco-friendly
The production of textiles is the second most polluting industry worldwide. Non-biodegradable petroleum-based dyes, toxic compounds to fix colors on textiles, and the release of large quantities of these colorants and complicated agents into the neighboring environment are the key causes of this issue. On the other hand, natural dyes are chemicals prevalent in nature and with eco-friendly properties. These dyes are recyclable and biodegradable. Due to their sustainability, they decompose readily in the soil after final usage. Again, canvas fabric is a durable, heavy-duty fabric used for tents, sails, bags, and industry. The use of canvas fabric in fashionable clothing is limited. This study aims to produce fashionable canvas trousers using sustainable garment dyeing. For environmental sustainability, we use natural turmeric dye extracted from turmeric rhizomes. We use tie-dyeing and over-dyeing techniques for garment dyeing. After dyeing and washing the canvas trousers, tests such as colorfastness to rubbing, wash, perspiration, and water (hot and cold) have been done. Both samples showed moderate to good test results. This study's main objective is to determine whether canvas fabrics can be used in fashionable styles in a sustainable approach.
