A new twist on Tie Dye...
After many years of research exploration and loving labor, longtime Dharma customer Shabd Simon-Alexander has brought us a beautiful new book devoted to bringing an udated perspective to the ancient art and craft of tie dye. This georgeous book beautifully illustrates the fact that tie dye has transcended the rainbow spiral. Yes, she does explore the traditional 'American' tie dye patterns we all know and love, but Shibori, dip dyeing, ombre (gradient) dyeing, splattering and more are also covered in beautiful detail.
As pretty as it is, this is not just a coffee table book. Packed with Shabd's design secrets, color guidance and expert tips for making each piece distinctly your own along with twenty-two step by step projects for garments, accessories and more (all of which can be easily customized to fit your own taste and style) this book will inspire and educate the new tie dyer and veteran alike. It will never be the "same ol" tie dye again.
p.s. Buy it, you'll like it.
This book is recommended by Dharma!
Hands down the best, easiest to follow tie-dye book for beginners and groups. It contains over 20 different patterns with easy to follow step-by-step instructions written by Sulfiati Harris, who was also the author of Rainbow Tie-Dye, formerly our best selling tie-dye book, but now out of print. Dharma has collaborated and included our own recipes so that folks buying our Tie-dye kits don't get confused. This book has great color photographs that really show you some of the steps as well as the end product. It is a great bargain, as we are selling it for the same price as our old Rainbow Tie-Dye book, but it is bigger, more colorful and better! This is now the book we include with our larger Group Tie-Dye Kits (50/100 shirt kits).
The book illustrates tie-dye on 100% cotton tee shirts, but can be done on any white clothing or fabric made of natural fibers. It tells you exactly what you need, how to do it, with a great Trouble Shooting section, as well as Dharma's own special instructions for tie-dying in large groups - what else you need, and how to do the math so you have enough dye!
8.5"x11", soft cover, 18 pgs., color photos.

I love, love, love your Procion dyes. They make the most awesome tie-dye. My husband wore his tie-dye t-shirt to work, and now people want me to make shirts for them! I ordered the advanced tie-dye techniques dvds, and I learned a lot. My t-shirts and pillowcases are works of art!
Your products always arrive quickly, are just what I ordered, and I appreciate the recycled boxes the orders arrive in.
Thank you. I'm sure I will order from you again. I've told friends about your business as well.
Finally, a step-by-step guidebook for tie-dying Stars! We are thrilled to present the most comprehensive instruction manual we’ve come across, written by a longtime tie-dyer and customer of Dharma Trading Co. Folks have been asking for a book like this for years, even before Virginia Glesser (author of the beginner's book, Tie-Dye, Back by Popular Demand) said she was going to write a sequel, but didn't.
This book is dedicated to precision tying and folding techniques for the ever elusive Stars, which are simpler versions of the even more complex Mandalas that the author also dyes. Over 300 carefully laid out photos illustrate each individual tie and fold required to achieve clean, crisp, vibrant patterns. You get much more detailed instruction than from a DVD, as it makes the technique really easy to see and follow. Richard Rogers has been tie-dyeing for over 30 years, and working on this wonderful book for 4! With this book, he shares his wealth of experience, revealing secrets that have taken years to perfect, and which lead to the skills to tie-dye true mandalas. This book is a must for any aspiring tie-dyer who already has down the basics and wants to further their art.
