Tie-dyeing, method of dyeing by hand in which colored patterns are produced in the fabric by gathering together many small portions of material and tying them tightly with string before immersing the cloth in the dye bath. The dye fails to penetrate the tied sections.
After drying, the fabric is untied to reveal irregular circles, dots, and stripes.
Various colored patterns may be produced by repeated tying and dipping in additional colors.
This hand method, common in India and Indonesia, has been adapted to machines. Also known as resist printing.
