As instance, the use of herbal mordant instead of those of mineral or metal for dyeing process of natural fibers has been extremely attracted attentions. However, replacement of metal mordant by the herbal ones will influence both the colorimetric attributes as well as the color fastness of the final product. In this report, the basic concepts and studies related to definition of colorimetric attributes of natural dyes employed for cotton, woolen and silk textiles have been considered, firstly. Then, the effect of applying of natural dyes on different fastness properties, i.e., light fastness, wash fastness, wet and dry rubbing fastness have been reviewed.
