Basic Dyes are typically synthetic, acting as bases and being an aniline dye. Although their colour basis isn't water soluble, it may be colored to be so by turning it into salt. They are frequently used to color jute, cut flowers, dry flowers, coir, etc. These dyes are also used to dye acrylic fibres. Basic Dyes are also preferred for colouring leather since they mix well with vegetable-tanned leather, eliminating the need for mordant. They are widely used in the market.
