About this design:

Take your artwork from dyed to digital, or consider using tie-dye inspired digital brushes to elevate your tie-dye aesthetic, bringing it into 2020 with today’s modern shopper in mind.


While resist-dyeing techniques have been around for centuries, the modern phrase “tie-dye” was invented in the 1960s and had its last heyday in the ‘90s. And in case you missed it, the ‘90s are officially back! With that comes a new wave of tie-dye love. Need some inspiration? Check out our round-up of tie-dyed designs and DIY projects we are loving right now.
