Story of the “Dyed” – Part 1

Hola readers!

How about some interesting tie-dye techniques?!

Though more interested in western fashion, I love the idea of the Indian surface ornamentation techniques like embroidery, mirror work, fabric painting, cut work, batik dye and my favourite, tie-dye.

The tie-dye technique was originally invented in Asia – I must say probably India even before the 8th century.and the name tie-dye was given in the early 60’s. This technique consists of folding, twisting, crushing, crumpling or pleating the fabric in several hundred different ways to get new textures and patterns every time. The fabric is then tied using strings/rubber bands. This tied piece of fabric is called a resist.

After making the resist, we dye the fabric in whatever required colour. and huzzaa!! Here’s our lovely design!

Here, I have done 5 different kinds of tie-dye techniques – 2 in scarves and 3 in hand kerchiefs.

1. Checked Tie Dye Technique

  • Fold the fabric in half twice – one lengthwise and one widthwise.
  • Repeat the folds until you get the desired size of the checks (box).
  • Tie the string/rubberband in the form of a ‘ + ‘ .
  • Dye it in the desired colour(s).









2. Marbling Tie Dye Technique

  • Crumple the fabric randomly.
  • Tie and string/rubber band in all the directions.
  • Dye the fabric.
  • PS : You can use multiple dye colors for this technique.







3. Horizontal/Vertical Leheriya

  • Accordion fold the fabric horizontally/vertically as required.
  • Tie the string/rubber band horizontally/vertically in as many numbers as you desire.
  • Dye the resist.
  • PS : You can use multiple colours in this technique.


4. Diagonal Leheriya

  • Accordion fold the fabric diagonally.
  • Tie the string/rubber band.
  • Dye the resist.
  • PS : You can use multiple colours in this technique.


5. Crumple Tie Dye Technique

  • Crumple the fabric randomly.
  • Tie and string/rubber band in all the directions.
  • Dye the fabric.
  • PS : You can use multiple dye colors for this technique.

    I want to express appreciation to you just for rescuing me from this problem. Right after browsing through the online world and obtaining opinions which were not beneficial, I believed my entire life was done. Living devoid of the approaches to the problems you have resolved by means of your good write-up is a critical case, and the ones that would have badly damaged my career if I hadn’t encountered your site. Your good capability and kindness in dealing with all the stuff was helpful. I am not sure what I would have done if I hadn’t come upon such a subject like this. I can at this time look forward to my future. Thank you so much for your high quality and effective guide. I will not think twice to recommend the blog to any individual who would need guidance on this situation.
