On this website (and at my Vermont workshops) I explain and teach a tie dye technique of "direct application" using laboratory wash bottles to directly apply fiber reactive dyes, also known as cold water process dyes.

Unlike most other dyes available, fiber reactive dyes will produce bright and intense colors that stay wash after wash.
