We wanted to bring some summer sunshine to our wardrobe and like many of you, we are hoping to upcycle our wardrobe. Nothing says peace and love like tie-dye, while it’s been a festival going must-have for several years now, you can upgrade the look into something more upscale by sticking to one color. Philip Huang focuses on natural dyes and new ways to dye. Natural dyes are the best for the planet and we picked their brain on one technique and process you can do at home. The best part about dying is you never know how it will come out and each piece is technically an original.

You will need:

  • White cotton socks (polyester and synthetics won’t dye well)
  • String (or save rubber bands from the garbage)
  • Turmeric Powder
  • Soya Milk
  • Vinegar
  • Baking Soda

Follow this DIY Video and once you nail it, upgrade to some larger pieces from totes to t-shirts. If you are worried that you might not wear some much Tie Dye, don’t worry! I’m sure your friends would love the unique pieces!
