Featured Artist : Will Shearer

Artist Bio / Statement

My name is Will Shearer, and I am a founding member of the Santa Barbara, tiedye collective, Tribe Ties.  In a way, Tribe Ties was born more than 25 years ago, when a single man began selling custom-made tie dyes to fund a dedication to the Grateful Dead. His work spread far and wide, as Deadheads across the globe donned his shirts, along with a few of the Dead themselves. For years, none other than himself and his close family knew the secret to his spectacularly detailed technique. We've reinvigorated his unique psychedelic style with Tribe Ties, our Isla Vista based tie dye collective. Combining bright color, symmetry, and astounding detail,make shirts, sheets, and more in a cornucopia of hues and patterns. We seek to bring color and peace to Isla Vista and the World. Tribe Ties - Gratefully Dying since February 2014. 

We particularly love Dharma's Fiber Reactive Procion Dyes. With some additional chemicals they can deliver quite a kick of color and detail.

About Tiered Discount Levels

You can combine cotton and rayon clothing & accessories to get the greatest discounts. Your discount is figured on the total number of cotton and rayon items we ship, not how many of each type, style or size. Mix and match them to get the best discount.

Example; adding 4 each of 3 different T-shirts in size Large should give you the 12+ price on all 12 shirts.

Some products may be excluded from discounts, and / or may discount only with themselves. If you have any questions at all please contact us toll free at 800-542-5227 (no buttons, just humans).
