Tie Dye Party Supplies – The Background
Tie Dye Party Supplies are based on tie-dye, a process of dyeing (coloring). Throughout the world, in many cultures, traditional dyeing methods have been used that produced tie-dye patterns. Tie-dye is just their modern version.
In the late 1960s and early 1970s tie dye was a part of the hippie style and became very popular, mainly in the west. In the Unites States, musicians like, John Sebastian, The Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin and Joe Cocker popularized it.
There is a simple process to do the tie-dyeing. The material is folded into a pattern and is bound with rubber bands or strings. Then the dye is applied, but only to parts of the material. Due to the ties, only some part of the material gets colored, and not the entire material. Different colors of dyes can be applied to different sections of the material to form designs. Once the process is complete, the material is rinsed to set the dye.
Although various kinds of dyes are available, mostly Procion MX fiber reactive dyes are used today. This dye can be applied at the warm room temperatures. The colors set well in cotton, silk, linen, hemp etc and do not fade with washing.
Pre-Colombian tie-dye was popular in Peru during 500 to 800 A.D. Their designs contain lines and small circles with bright red, green, blue and yellow colors.

Tie Dye Party Supplies – The Options
You may select Basic Party Pack from our Tie Dye Birthday Party Supplies which includes all the stuff you need for 8 guests. Or you may go with the Deluxe Party Pack from our Tie Dye Kids Party Supplies that has much more items than the Tie Dye Basic Pack. The Tie Dye deluxe pack is also for 8 guests. If you need favor boxes as well, I would suggest you to choose the combination of Deluxe Party Pack & 8 Favor Boxes from our Tie Dye Kids Birthday Party Supplies as it would cost you much more if you purchase them separately. If you think that the number of guests may exceed 8 you should consider Tie Dye Party Pack Add-On as it contains extra items for the extra guests. You may order Tie Dye Party Favor Boxes separately as well.
I’ve personally used Tie Dye Party Supplies for my kid’s birthday and through my personal experience I would recommend it to all Tie Dye lover kids.
