I love the fluidity of a beautiful Tie dye print! From the ancient Japanese techniques of Shibori (coming from the word Shiboru; to wring, squeeze and press) Tie dye has gone mainstream! Popularized in the mid 60’s in the United-States, these vibrant prints can bring an effortless boho-inspired look to your outfit or even your bedroom. Looking great on curtains, bed sheets, duvet covers, pillows and wallpaper.
Over the years, tie-dye has become safer, deliberate, classy and neutral; it is no longer that grungy Woodstock look that may come to mind. We have been seeing a lot of the new tie-dye in formal designer pieces, such as Levi’s, Isabel Marant, Vera Wang, Ralph Lauren, etc..
If you want to experiment your own Shibori print at home, Martha Stewart Living features a very easy project to make elegant tie-dye at home here.
