Abstract

Young coconut fiber is used as a natural dye, in addition to producing colors that have their characteristics; it is also not harmful to the environment. Young coconut coir is easily obtained and minimal cost, so it is more economical to be used as an alternative textile dye. This study aims to reveal, describe and analyze the processing of young coconut coir extract and see the colors produced from young coconut coir extract on Primisima cotton material with differences in fixation with Tawas, Limestone Tohor, and Tunjung. This study used a qualitative method through experiments. The results revealed the name of the color produced from young coconut coir extract without fixation was Dark Salmon Pink with color code # C3937F, with an R element of 76.47%, G 57.65%, and B 49.80%. Whereas dyeing using alum fixation agent produces color Clamshell Pink with color code #BBA491, R element equal to 73.33%, G 64.31% and element B 56.86% and lime fixation agent produces Muddy Waters Brown color with color code # B7875C with elements R 71.76%, G 52.94%, and B 36.08%. There is a striking color difference when dyeing using a fixation agent tunjung with the resulting color is Soft Brown with color code # 6B5F46 and RGB elements lower than other fixation substances namely R 41.96%, G 37.25%, and B 27.45%.
