The process consists of folding, twisting, pleating, or crumpling a T-shirt and tying up with with string or rubber bands, followed by dying the tied garment. The manipulations of the fabric prior to the application of dye are called resists. Tie Dye is characterized for the use of bright saturated saturated colors and patterns.

Back in the 60′s Tie Dye was usually made with retail house hold dyes. Nowadays the most commonly used dye for this process is Procion MX fiber reactive dyes. They are effective on cellulose fibers such as cotton, hemp, rayon and linen. Procion Dyes are relatively safe and easy to use.
