Tie and Dye is the name that is used to refer to the technique that is used to refer to the method that is involved when a piece of cloth material is tied and dipped in colour in order to form beautiful pattern on the piece of cloth.
The dyeing process before proceeding to mix the components together, it is
important to bear in mind that all the main components (dye, hydrogen
sulphate and caustic soda) are dangerous and not fit for human consumption.
Again, dye spillage must be thoroughly washed off with water. Also, all
utensils used must be properly and thoroughly washed.
