Sarongs have been the traditional clothes for the Balinese for centuries. This piece of cloth was used as every day wear, for both men and women, as they worked in the rice fields, or in the house. It was used to cover their bodies as they walked to the rivers to bathe. It was then used as a towel to dry them off after bathing. Sarongs were even used as thin blankets to cover them when they slept.
As it was, and still is to this day, such an important piece of clothing, many designs have been created to decorate this fabric. Traditional batik, tie dye and now machine printed designs have been used for this versatile piece of clothing.

what is tie dye?
The word tie dye refers to any dye process in which a pattern is produced by folding, twisting or tying the material. Originally, Indonesia adopted the Japanese form of tie dye, called Shibori, and created their own version, called pelangi or tritik. These early versions used natural dyes, and therefore only consisted of a few basic colors. The main colors used in tie dye sarongs were blues, whites and browns
Much later, in the 1960’s, the modern tie dye process was developed in America, and was introduced to Bali by the first travelers. These modern patterns use much brighter colors and many more color combinations. These bright colored tie dye patterns were particularly popular with the hippy community in California. These people traveled, and brought their fashions with them.
how are tie dye sarongs made?
Tie dye sarongs are made by taking a plain piece of fabric. This fabric is washed in very hot water, to get rid of any oil or dirt. It is then folded, twisted or crumpled in to a design of the artist’s choice. This process is such an art, that rarely will you be able to recreate the exact same result each time. Each piece will be unique.
Once twisted in to a design, the fabric is dipped, or sprayed with the different colors. Usually starting from the lightest colors and moving in to the darker ones. The fabric is then left to dry over night, before being washed and hung out to dry.
colors and patterns
Tie dye sarongs can come in any number of colors and patterns. The traditional patterns are spirals, peace signs and diamonds. The marble effect is also a popular look. However, this is by no means all that tie dye can be. The Balinese are such artists, they like to experiment, and new tie dye sarong designs are always appearing in the stores.
The most popular colors for these tie dye sarongs for men, tend to be the rasta colors, red, yellow, green and black, and this is a common look on the men hanging out at the beach. Tie dye for women can come in many colors, but pinks and blues are particular favorites.
