Mordant literally means "to bite". The mordant is the chemical link that fixes the dye to a substrate by combining with the dye pigment to form an insoluble compound. 

 

Most natural dyes need a mordant to fix the color to the fiber and increase lightfastness.  Some common examples of dyes that require a mordant are cochineal, madder, fustic, osage, and logwood.

 

Made from Aluminum Sulfate.
