Tie-dye with very fashionably updated styles and designs, has become the fashion mania today.

As from accessories to garments, it has made a mark with its unique appearances and flawless trendy varieties. Definitely, Tie-dye apparel will make the wearer like a living piece of art.
Tie-dye, a process or technique of hand-dyeing the fabric by tying a piece of cloth into a tight bundle, is basically a variegated pattern which gives a streaked or mottled look to the fabric.
Originally, the process of tie-dye refers to the dyeing of fabrics, where the portions of fabric are covered by resists or bindings that do not acquire dye colour during the colouring process. So, the dyeing is prevented from certain penetrated portions of the fabrics that are not meant to be coloured. However, they acquire the design through the uncoloured portions.
Dying is an ancient pastime of hippies, counter-culture members and etc. But, Tie-dye is a modern art form invented by the Americans in the early 1960s for a set of ancient-resist dying techniques and their products. However, there are some earliest evidences on the survival of Tie-dye in Peru during 500-810AD, Japan in 8th century and Hausa region of West Africa used for centuries. But the Tie-dye has became world famous by an American Professor from Columbia University, by means of samples and live demonstrations.
In India, Gujarat and Rajasthan are the major hubs of Tie-dye fabrics. The techniques like single-Ikkat where either the warp or weft is tied and then dyed and double-Ikkat where both the warp and weft are individually tied and dyed are used widely in India.
Tie-dye is used to create a wide variety of fabrics right from accessories to apparels like sarees, salwar suits, kurtis, dupattas and western outfits etc with wide range of designs such as spiral, diamond, peace sign and other marble effects.
Techniques like stencils, screen printings, blocks, stitches and other discharging pastes are widely used in Tie-dye. Dyes like vat dyes, direct dyes, napthol dyes and procion dyes, fiber reactive and other household dyes are under use. Both the protein based and synthetic based fabrics can be dyed with acid dyes. A typical tie-dye process consists of 3 steps:
Pleating or crumpling
Different patterns or designs on to the fabrics can be created by using another three steps such as making the stripes, creating the spiral and creating the folka dots. Unlike resist-dying techniques, a typical Tie-dye is characterized by use of saturated primary colours and bold patterns with spiral, mandala and peace signs with simple motifs, monochromatic colour schemes, postures, trendy designs, dots, stripes, animals, birds and other square designs are beautifully adorned on to fabrics.
Bandani, Leharia, Batik, Assam sicos, Orissan handlooms and Ikkat weavings are the soothing pieces for all grand occasions.
However, the popularity of Tie-dye emerged to an enhanced version of Tie-dye, i.e., sophisticated Tie-dye and has become the shadow to the fashion industry.
