Flow chart of Tie Dyeing:
Tie dyeing is a technique for dyeing natural fabrics. Tie-dye is a process of resist dyeing textiles or clothing that is made from knit or woven fabric, usually cotton; typically using bright colors. Tie-dyeing is mainly based on the traditional art of folding or tying fabric to create resists. That stops the dye from being absorbed into parts of the fabric, thereby forming unique patterns of color. It is a modern version of traditional dyeing methods used in many cultures throughout the world. “Tie-dye” can also describe the resulting pattern or an item that features this pattern.
Process Flow Chart of Tie Dyeing
Here garments will tie with the help of rope. Resulting in the tied position don’t pickup color during dyeing.
Garments will tie at an accurate position according to the buyer design
Water stock in a basin then water will heat
Chemical and dye have to stirred properly in a basin
Garments will emerge in the dye bath at a certain time, this time depends on a shade
Then garments out and shade matching will check
If shade is OK
Then it is drying
Tie-dyeing is one of the post-weaving physical resist-dyeing techniques using binding and compression to create patterning in the textile industry. This basic hand process involves tying a raised portion of whole apparel. Including thread, string, twine, raffia, rubber bands, rope, and so on linear materials to “reserve”. It protects areas from receiving dye penetration during a vat-immersion or dip-dye process.
Although dyeing is considered a “surface” technique. Through this method, the dyer can create random or control patterning and color manipulations that are fully integrating into the fibers of the clothing.
