In this study, turmaric powder was ball milled in the presence of dispersing agent in order to obtain dispersedly extracted curcumin. After that the dispersed curcumin was employed as dyestuff for cotton and polyester fabrics using exhaustion method. Fabrics were dyed at 2, 4, 6 and 8, 10 % o.w.f. Dyeing results showed that in case of polyester color strength (K/S value) increased with an increase in absorbed dye until reaching saturation point at 8% o.w.f where high K/S value of 21 was achievable.
