Technique: Tie Dye

Tie Dye

Fabric dyeing is a historical and rich cultural tradition in Ghana. Fabrics are dyed by hand, resulting in beautiful patterns with vibrant colors. One of the most iconic Ghanaian techniques is tie dye. To create tie dye patterns, artisans first bundle fabric into sections. The fabrics are submerged into brilliant dyes, but the tied sections resist absorbing the color. The fabrics are soaked, washed and dried, leaving a brilliant pattern on the finished product. The tie dye process is time-intensive, but Ghanaian artisans are recognized for their care and attention to detail, resulting in beautiful, one-of-a-kind textiles.
