What is Tie-Dye?

Tie-dye is a fabric dyeing technique in which fabrics are dyed using a variety of colors. The most common method is to tie the fabric in knots and then dip it in dye. Once the fabric has been dyed, the knots are untied to reveal the unique patterns created.

Tie-dye has been around for as long as the 1920s; however, it gained more popularity in the 1960s during the hippie movement. Tie-dye was seen as a symbol of peace and love and quickly became a popular fashion trend.

From Etsy to high fashion, tie-dye is undoubtedly having a moment.

Different Patterns of Tie-Dye

Many different patterns can be created using the tie-dye technique. Some of the most popular designs include:

  • Spiral: This is the most classic pattern, and it's created by spiraling the fabric around itself before dipping it in dye. Usually, rubber bands are used to secure the fabric and create white space in the design.
  • Bullseye: The bullseye is created by folding the fabric in half and then tying it in a knot in the center. Once it's been dipped in dye, you will end up with a bulls-eye pattern.
  • Chevron: A chevron pattern looks like a series of V shapes. It is used to create geometric designs on fabric.
  • Galaxy: This pattern is similar to the spiral; however, multiple small waves are created instead of one continuous loop.

Usually, cotton fabric is the preferred choice for tie-dyeing.
