Bombay Dyeing (full name: The Bombay Dyeing & Mfg. Co. Ltd., established 1879) is the flagship company of the Wadia Group, engaged mainly into the business of Textiles. Bombay Dyeing is one of India's largest producers of textiles.

Its current chairman is Nusli Wadia.

In March 2011, Jeh Wadia (36), the younger son of Nusli, has been named the managing director of Wadia Group's flagship, Bombay Dyeing & Manufacturing Company, while the elder son, Ness (38) has resigned from the post of joint MD of the company.

Bombay Dyeing was often in the news, apart from other things, for various controversies surrounding its tussle with the late Dhirubhai Ambani of Reliance Industries Limited and with Calcutta based jutebaron Late Arun Bajoria.

Lackadaisical management has ensured that the company, which was ranked 68 in the Business India Super 100 list in 1997 has steadily lost ground and by 2010 ranked 300 in the ET 500 list.

The company sponsors many events, including Bombay Dyeing Gladrags Mrs. India contest.
