About Tie Dye

Warm summer air and long lazy days inspire tons of fun outdoor projects like tie-dye. Kids and grownups alike can belly up to the picnic table and create a vibrant tie-dye shirt with a twist of some sturdy rubber bands and an application of colorful dyes. Sporting unique, striped, or kaleidoscope designs, tie-dyed clothing is as much fun to wear as it is to make. Although many believe this dying technique originated with 1960s hippie counter culture, fabric was tied and dyed in parts of India, Japan, and Africa as far back as the sixth century. Fashion-conscious people who love color can find a variety of tie-dye garments on eBay in new and used condition. Female shoppers who lean toward colorful vintage-inspired styles might enjoy a PINK tie-dye hoodie from Victoria's Secret. Contrary to the label, these hoodies are available in a variety of colors, including pink, purple, gray, and blue. Shopping from home makes for an easy, stress-free purchase.
