The history of tie-dyeing

A traditional Chinese folk craft is known as “tie-dye” has a long history and has been used extensively in folk clothing. As trends continue to evolve and reincarnate, the traditional craft is no longer confined to a niche but has been adapted by major designers to provide a new element to the fashion world in the form of socks for everyday wear.

Tie-dyeing is a traditional and unique dyeing process that is divided into two parts: tying and dyeing. The fabric is first tied in various ways with string and then dyed with dye. The dye penetrates where the fabric is not tied and does not penetrate where it is tied, resulting in a variety of different patterns with a very ‘ethnic’ feel.

The finished garment will look different depending on how it is tied and dyed, and even if it is tied and dyed in the same colour, it will look different depending on the area tied and dyed, with the pattern being the highlight.

In 2006, the tie-dye technique was approved by the Chinese State Council to be included in the First List of National Intangible Cultural Heritage, with the declared areas being Dali City in Yunnan Province and Zigong City in Sichuan Province.
