Little information regarding the utilization of algal-based pigments in textile industry is available despite their abundance in aquatic ecosystems, varying color nature, and relatively fast-growing habit than other photosynthetic organisms. The aim of the current study is to optimize the conditions in order to harness the colorants from selected marine algal species and evaluating their dye yielding potential for fabric dyeing. Cotton fabrics were dyed with aqueous, alkaline, acidic or organic… Expand
