How is it created?
The first and most important step is that the clothing to be dyed needs to be washed on a 30 degree cycle. All clothing comes with a sizing chemical that repels the dye so this is required to ensure the item retains the dye colour. Once washed it is then soaked in soda ash for around 15 minutes which aids the dye to bond with the Cotton fibres. The final step in prepping the clothing is to then put it on a spin cycle to ring out the excess water from the previous two steps. The clothing is now ready to be tied & dyed.
This item is tightly twisted along the length until it is coiled into a spiral form. The item is then bound into place using elastic bands.
For this item we used liquid dyes whereby dye powder is mixed in a bottle with water. For each section the chosen liquid dye colour is applied to that section to the front of the item fully ensuring no white bits remain. The item is then flipped over where it is fully covered in black dye then wrapped in cling film and left for 24 hours on a rack next to a hot radiator. This allows the dyes to fully bind with the cotton fibres and the heat results in a more vibrant colour on the end product. Afterwards the clothing is rinsed out in the sink then re-washed on another 30 degree cycle to remove any excess dye.
All dyes used on our products are Vegan.
