This current study investigated the aqueous extracts of using mangosteen leaves for dyeing cotton fabric with various mordants to develop color shadings.  Freshly prepared extracts were subjected to preliminary phytochemical screening. It was found that mangosteen leaf extract revealed the presence of pH in the range of 6.0-7.6 and the content of phenolic compound, flavonoid, reducing sugar and tannin in the range of 0.32-1.10 GAE/mg DW, 0.70-2.97 QE/mg DW, 0.91-7.15 mg/mL and 17.5-24.79 ECGC/mg DW, respectively. This might be responsible for the reducing properties. The three times repetition of 80g/L extract with mordant was found to be the most satisfy characterized by using colorimetric characteristics (CIE L*a*b*). It can be concluded that mangosteen extract has high potential for fabric dyeing and might be a promising low-cost reducing agent for developing green dyeing for clothing in the near future.
