However, since there is a prohibitation using chemical dyes, especially from azzo species in the Netherland, Japan, and Germany, it opens the opportunity to replace chemical dyes to natural dyes this research was aimed to inform the advantage of using the Indigofera plant (Indogofera tinctoria) as natural coloring agents for coloring batik cloth which has a prospective future supporting the eco–fashions.
