Tie Dye Spiral Kids are handmade using high-quality dyes for a minimum release of dye (bleed) or fading. We use Gildan t-shirts with Colortone’s label which is the tie dye company. The fabric is 100% heavyweight cotton.
The pattern is the combination of two colors in a spiral, having a selection of ten (10) designs to choose from. These are available from Youth XS (2-4) to Youth L (14-16).
If you think that tie dye started on the ’60s, you are wrong; the process received the name of “Tie Dye” on 1909; however, it started as “Resist Dyeing” due to the resistance to prevent the dye from reaching all the fabric, thereby creating a pattern.
There are many techniques, and dyes to get different results. For example, using wax: the cloth receives a treatment with wax or some form of paste before dyeing it; mechanical: by tieing, stitching, or clamping using clothespegs or rubber bands, being the case of Tie Dye Spiral Kids; chemical: treatment using dyes that react with the fabric, or not by blocking it with other chemical agents.
Resist dyeing started in Eurasia and Africa since ancient times. The first discoveries of wax dyeing were from Egypt in the fourth century, for mummy wrappings, and the dye was a mixture of blood and ashes.
