Hippie tie dye is present since the ’60s in the US and around the world since ancient times. This technique re-appeared as a way to reject the regular fashion established in society; it also represents a symbol of connection with the universe through its magnificent spectrum of colors, and music.
If you think that tie dye started on the ’60s, you are wrong; the process received the name of “Tie Dye” on 1909, but 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. 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 Navy Crystal Wash T-Shirts; 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.
