The methanolic extract of seven different natural dye yielding plant parts and extracted dye imparted textile fabrics has been analysed for their antideterioration property. It is found that the natural dye treated fabrics showed significant levels of antideterioration property against five different cellulose degrading microbes. But the fabrics directly dyed with the plant extract showed less wash durability and antideterioration property. Hence to increase the durability and antideterioration property in the fabrics, the fabrics were treated by a novel technique termed microencapsulation/crosslinking techniques. It is observed that the plant extract microencapsulated/crosslinked fabrics showed increased durability up to 10-15 wash cycles when compared to control (undyed fabric and directly dyed fabric).
