Juglans Regia also known as Walnut, is a large deciduous tree mainly grown in poor soil. The colour is derived from the shell of walnut fruit. It is cultivated commercially in Asia, Europe, South America and United states. The parts used for textile dyeing are leaves, bark and husk. Apart from textile dyeing it is also used in medicinal industry. Walnut is used for study different dyeing properties for different textile. The main colour component was extracted by boiling the bark powder at high temperature and then it is cooled down and filtered. The remaining residue is again heated for 2-3 times for obtaining the remaining colour component.

This extracts have very good light, wash and rub fastness.
