Tie-Dye is a common dyeing technique that presents in many different cultures. In Asian, for example, we can see 扎染(zā rǎn)in China and Shibori in Japan. Traditional, this technique uses threads and other forms of manipulation to create patterns using natural dyes especially indigo. The patterns are meant to be even in a , emphasizing the folk art’s appreciation for the beauty of imperfection.
