Tie-dye is a method of resist dyeing involving tightly tying areas of fabric that are not to be dyed. When the ties are removed, a pattern emerges. The resist areas can be tiny or large, and the patterns usually have irregular edges where the dye bleeds into the pattern. This hand dyeing method is traditional in Indonesia and India, but since the 1960s, it has become very popular around the world. It is most often applied to cotton, but silk or other fibers may be used.
Imitation tie-dye is machine-printed to resemble true tie-dye.
