tie dye


Tie-ye is typically brightly colored, patterned textile or clothing which is made from ordinary cloth, usually cotton, through a resist dyeing process known as tie-dyeing. This is the modern version of a traditional dyeing method used in many cultures in Asia and Africa. Tie-dyeing was briefly very fashionable in the West in the late 1960s and early 1970s as part of hippie style. It was made popular in the United States by in large part from Mickey Hart and the Grateful Dead.
