Summer 2019: tie-dye is back in fashion
Shibori is a Japanese term for a method of dyeing fabric by winding or tying it. The process itself is very easy: clothes are pulled in the right places with a rope, and then dipped in boiling paint. After that, the thing is cooled and unwound - unusual patterns of different colors are formed at the bending points. It is useful to know that to get a good print, not only the technique is important, but also the quality of the fabric.
Shibori concept changed to tai dai in the 1970s due to the spread of subcultures in America and Europe. This type of clothing dyeing is cheap and exotic, so the hippies used it to demonstrate rebellion against the political system.
Today "tie-dye" applied to any clothing: T-shirts, T-shirts, sneakers, baseball caps, trousers and jackets. Due to its versatility, the drawing is suitable even for supporters of a conservative style. However, it is better if the clothes in a duet with tie-dye will echo at least one shade of the print. If you are a fan of laconic bows, then put on plain clothes and a minimum number of accessories for this pattern.
Let's try some daily tie-dye looks:
If you have a tie-dye T-shirt in your wardrobe, pair it with white trousers or a solid business suit. Heeled shoes and stud earrings will help complete the look.
Summer shorts with this print will look great when tucked into a light-colored shirt or blouse. Of the accessories, it is recommended to add round bracelets on the hands and a small clutch to match the color of the clothes.
Tie-dye dresses are great for warmer weather. Choose discreet and sophisticated shoes, then you will be able to create a romantic look. A wicker straw bag will be an addition.
Tie-dye is extremely practical and easy to create yourself. For this you will need: a vessel; paints (acrylic or for cotton); rope; warm water and a spoonful of salt. There are no exact proportions, if you want to get a rich color, then use more water. The clothes should be wrinkled and tied, then deepened into the mixture for a couple of minutes. After drying, open the item and enjoy the unique ornament.
