Tie-dye has had resurgence on the catwalk, in interiors and with crafters and as part of the ‘slow craft movement’; and Tie Dip Dye is targeted at a new generation of dyers who value subtle and modern designs rather than the lurid psychedelic patterns of old. Whether you’re trying dip-dyeing, arashi, space dyeing or classic kumo circle designs, this book contains all the essential techniques you’ll need to start creating unique fashions and homewares. It also includes detailed step-by-step instructions for an array of techniques, inspirational projects to try, and variation swatches showing how to achieve a myriad of stunning designs.
