Tie-Dye (also known as  絞り染め /Shiborizome)  – a term invented in the late 1960s in the United States. It combines several methods of ancient resist-dyeing techniques and consists of winding, stitching, folding, or squeezing fabrics. Nodular staining is considered one of the most unique ways of ornamenting fabrics and originally had been used by artists of ancient India, China, and Africa.

The complete manufacturing process is the following: the fabric is being tied in the right places, and then lowered into boiling paint. Then it needs to be removed, cooled and unwinded.  There will appear strips of the original fabric (mostly with some white color) in the place of puffs, and the rest of the fabric will get the color of the paint in a stylish and unpredictable ornament.
