Although the popularity of tie dye grew during the 1960s, it first appeared during the 6th century in India, Africa, and Japan. The hippie movement adopted the bright colours and psychedelic designs as their uniform for the era.
Tie dye involves using rubber bands to tie the garment and adding various colours of dye. The band prevents the dye from reaching certain areas, and this produces an interesting design. Find shirts, skirts, scarves and other accessories dyed in this fashion.
