Tie-Dye is back???

Apparently Tie-Dye is making a come back and I have to admit I am kinda excited for it! Just don't think your old t-shirts are trendy again you are going to find this fashionable pattern in home decor. One the home front, you'll notice shibori-style tie-dye patterns and hues on well-chosen pieces like hand-knotted silk and wool rug in the deepest blues. Tie-dye patterned, bedding, placemats, bowls, lamp shades, art work and more. House & Home refers to this pattern as "Shibori-style - Japanese shibori, centuries-old techniques for resist-dyeing cloth by folding, binding, pleating, or stitching. " Shibori is a more controlled pattern with a sophisticated palette of moody tones. So don't start wearing those multi coloured T's this trend only calls for colours of the same tone, but do they look good!

So get your dye and bowls out because this trend is back and with a twist. Kids all over are probably inching to make tie-dye shirts and I am guessing so are a few of us!

Until next time,

w&c designer girl!
