An investigation was carried out to find out the printing effect of turmeric (Curcuma longa) dye paste on physical properties of eri silk fabric. Plain weave eri silk fabrics with three different mordants (alum, stannous chloride and ferrous sulphate) were selected for the study. Fabrics were printed with using screen printing techniques with two traditional designs. From the experiment it was found that all the printed samples exhibited an increasing trend increase recovery angle, abrasion
