Myrobalan (Terminalia chebula) grows primarily in the foothills of the Himalayas. It is an upright tree with small oval leaves and lovely bright yellow flowers. Myrobalan has always been used a primary component for cotton dyeing in India and is often employed as a mordant prior to creating brown and black on cotton fabrics. The Myrobalan is a fine powder made from dried fruit. 2%-5% yield a light buff while 10%-15% give a brownish yellow. Myrobalan overdyed with indigo makes a beautiful teal.
