Chemical dyes from textile industry continuously degrading environment. Dyes from natural resources are proved to be ecofriendly
since ancient times. Anthocyanin from plants is not only a natural dye but have many other potential characteristics.
Colour of anthocyanin varies with pH which shows its adaptability to nature with varied environmental conditions Research
showed that they possess antimicrobial properties. Advance research using Anthocyanin and its related gene, textile could develop
with antibacterial and self-fluorescence properties. Anthocyanin is also known to protect plant in extreme weather conditions.
This property could be used to develop super cloths. Anthocyanin has been used in organic solar cells because of their ability to
convert light energy into electrical energy. Anthocyanin is also known to double the Shelf Life of plants. The application of genetic
modification using properties of Anthocyanin in textile producing plants could bring revolution.
