Seaweed is rich in bioactive compounds, antimicrobial and antioxidant properties and is not compatible with the skin and biodegradable. In the ulvaceae family, it is an edible green algae. Most marine algae, including chlorophyll, carotenoids, phycobilins, beta-carotene, and lutein, have large pigments. The aquatic algae process contains polysaccharides, polysaccharides, lipids, carbohydrates, carotenoids, vitamins, enzymes, sterols, and antibiotics. Alkaloids, terpenes, terpenoids, agaragar, algin, and phloro tannins are the antimicrobial compounds present in seaweeds. Natural colors are produced using Ulvans and oligo Ulvans from green seaweed and act as a pigment-producing color. Ulvans are water-soluble pigments that are used to absorb and pass green to the surface of the fabric. The primary pigment for Ulvans in seaweed. The colors are drawn from the sea weed. In this research, the color was derived from green seaweed, which shows promising color of the fabric.
