Hippie tie-dye has been available since the 1960s in the US and around the world. It came to represent a way to reject the regular fashion standards established in society. It is a symbol of connection with the universe through its spectrum of colors.
If you think that tie-dye started during the 1960s, you would be mistaken; the process received the name of “Tie Dye” in 1909. It began as “resist dying” due to the efforts 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 treatment with wax or some form of paste before dyeing it; mechanical: by tying, stitching, or clamping the fabric, using clothespins or rubber bands, for example, the Tie Dye Beach Towels; chemical: treatment using dyes that react with the fabric.
What we know today as tie-dye started as “Resist dyeing” in ancient times, in Eurasia and Africa. The first discoveries of wax dyeing were from Egypt in the fourth century. It was used for mummy wrappings and the dye was a mixture of blood and ashes.
