Wine red extract is a deep red colorant produced from the excreta of the insect (leciffer lacca) which mainly found on kusum trees and juniper trees. This lac dye is extracted by water extraction process of stickle lac. These stickle resins are first cut down into pieces and boiled into hot water and after it is filtered well. The main colouring component in this dye is carminic acid which gives bright red colour to the fabrics. This is easily soluble in water and have good colour fastness properties. It is the byproduct produced during the shellac purification process.
