The process of tie-dye typically consists of folding, twisting, pleating, or crumpling fabric or a garment and binding with string or rubber bands (ties), followed by application of color (dye). The manipulations of the fabric prior to dyeing are called resists, as they partially or completely resist the dyes, keeping them from penetrating the fabric. The result is a design that appears the same on the front and back of the fabric, allowing both sides of the fabric to be visible.
Marcus brings this colorful and dramatic look to a new collection of 108" QUILT BACKS
. Design variations can run across the entire 3-yard length of the backing, making each piece unique. Much more than just quilt backs, these contemporary tie dyes blend with classic furnishings, echoing the current combinations of traditional and trend found in home décor today.
