Tie-dye is a technology of fabrics dyeing with a colourful and original pattern creating. The dyeing process is quite simple. Making it at home is easy. All that you need is a natural textile (cotton, silk, linen), fabric dye, rubber band or thread, a brush or a cotton pad. The textile must have a high quality. Painting an item in a dry or wet form is both possible. In the first case, the border between the colours is more pronounced, and in the second it is more blurred.

Follow the next guide to create tie-dye at home:

  1. Fold the textile and tie arbitrary nodules in the appropriate places, make twists or crumple the item, and fix it with threads or elastic bands.
  2. Prepare a dye according to the instructions, immerse the item in a dye or apply it with a syringe or paint brush.
  3. After waiting a few minutes, rinse the item in cool water.
  4. Dry it without the rubber bands removing. It is necessary for the final pattern fixation.
  5. When the item is dry, untie the fabric, remove the clamps and iron it.

After the process, you can see the strips and spots of the native fabric on the places of tying according to the given pattern. The rest of the textile obtains the colour of dye forming a certain print.

The pattern making technique can also be applied to ready-made clothes: T-shirts, tops, skirts, dresses, etc. In this case, follow the same guidelines as for the textile.

Types of tie and dye patterns

There are several basic types of tie and dye techniques:

  • Spiral
  • Stripes (Shibori)

You can even combine some of the basic techniques to get complex and artistically diverse compositions of prints and ornaments. Dye colours and concentration, as well as variants of their mixing on the outfit, can be any.

Let's find out how to obtain the types of mentioned above tie-dye effects.


To obtain this classic and the most popular pattern you need to do the following:

  • spread an outfit out on a flat surface;
  • place the thumb in the centre;
  • start to wrap it in a circle helping with the index finger;
  • fix the pattern with threads or rubber bands.

Vertical or horizontal stripes (Shibori)

  • spread an item out on a flat surface
  • roll it as a tube starting from the bottom
  • tie it with elastic band in several places (ten bands make ten horizontal stripes on clothing)

If you roll the outfit as a tube not from below but any side, you can get a picture with vertical stripes.

Getting this pattern is effortless. Tie small pinches of an outfit with an elastic band in any arbitrary places. If you twist them a bit on the helix principle, you can get several circles of the corresponding shape.

Make three pinches next to each other and connect them with an elastic band. The more pinches you have, the more detailed the rose is.

An item should be folded in the shape of a fan. As a result, you get horizontal or vertical stripes.


Such a technique is considered one of the most difficult. To obtain a lightning pattern follow the next steps:

  • fold an outfit in half and lengthwise so that the inflexion line passes through the centre of the neckline;
  • put two folds in the way to form the letter ‘N’ with the seams of an item;
  • make some layers or folds in this way.

The distance between the folds should be 5 cm. Do not forget to tie the outfit with rubber bands. The quantity of bands equals the number of 'lightning's flashes.'

If you don’t know what pattern to get, wrinkle your outfit and wrap it with rubber bands. As a result, you obtain a crumpled effect.

Most often they are used for dresses, skirts and blouses or tops.

Choose the fairly simple tailoring for dresses, since the print carries a sufficient artistic filling and attracts attention. In this case, a complex cut and abundance of trims and details can overload the image except for frills and ruffles.

The gowns should be made straight or slightly flared with single or oblique tailoring. The length can be various. It is better to choose a round or V-shaped neckline. This ornament goes well with dress styles on the straps.

Use a flared style and midi or maxi length for tie-dye skirts. Although, the pencil skirt made of dense fabric with a not extremely bright pattern is also appropriate. Pick up plain tops for these skirts. Otherwise, your image will be too much colourful.

Tops and blouses

These items should also have simple tailoring. Make the sleeves short or three quarters. Use tops with cold shoulders or thin straps. Mind the rule: mix colourful top with a plain bottom. The motley top comes with a monochrome bottom. A skirt or trousers can repeat one of the shades that are present in the pattern or at least combine with it. Tops and blouses go perfectly with jeans of any style.

Besides, don’t forget about the tunics. Nigerian ladies are fond of them. Tie-dye print is great for straight and elongated tunics with a round neckline. The hem of the item can be asymmetrical. No more details should be added.
