People commonly use myrobalan (Terminalia chebula) as a dye throughout India. It grows primarily in the foothills of the Himalayas. It is an upright tree with small oval leaves and lovely bright yellow flowers. The pods are the source of the color.

Myrobalan has always been used as a primary component for cotton dyeing in India. People often employ it as a mordant prior to creating brown and black on cotton fabrics, using iron.
