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.
MOST HELPFUL REVIEWS
I bought it and I like it! I appreciate that the author explains the "why and how" of dyeing. With this information it's easy to add your own creative twist. There are lots of inspiring photos of garments that people I know would actually wear. All in all a really useful and handy reference book.
