Cascas de árvores nativas como corante natural têxtil


Nowadays, possibilities have been sought to improve textile production in order to reduce the environmental impact generated along the chain. Textile dyeing with natural dyes appears in this scenario as a sustainable alternative. The search for new sources of dye from native flora is a way to value Brazilian biodiversity. The objective of this study was to discuss possibilities of applying native tree barks as a textile dye. An explanation was made based on bibliographic review. Twenty-one species were collected whose bark can be used as a dye. The methods of collecting bark are already used in Brazil. They can be obtained by sustainable extractivism; of trees planted in agroforestry systems; and from wood residues. The main chromophore extractives from bark are tannins. Different dyeing methods are discussed in the literature. Native tree bark has the potential to be used in textile dyeing.
