Why We Love It:

It's no secret that  tie-dye has been all the rage as of late. Is it because quarantine brought out our creative sides, or that everyone just loves the nostalgic style?
Either way, tie dye is here to stay and we love all of the new modern colorways that have been made popular recently. 

Muted black and white  tie dye can be incorporated into your wardrobe and alongside your design seamlessly.

Caring For Tie-Dye:

Due to the nature of tie-dye, loose pigments may remain on the surface of the garments. Therefore it's strongly recommend washing these garments only with like-colored garments, as some of the tie dyes may stain light or white colored garments in the wash cycle. Washing the garments in cold water will reduce the possibility of staining.
