Tie-Dye

Tie-dye, which became most popular in the Western world after the 1960’s psychedelic era, is the process of tying and dyeing a knit/woven fabric. One binds only the areas of fabric they would like to dye, and patterns are formed by binding various parts of the the fabric and dyeing these different or alternating colors. The material must be rinsed upon completion, and then the dye is set and the fabric is ready to go!

Versions of this can be seen in fashion and decor dated all the way back to the 500’s throughout South America, Asia, and Africa.
