About the Author

Melanie Brummer started experimenting with dye and block printing in the early 90s, manufacturing and selling a line of hand-dyed T-shirts and dresses. She currently teaches designers about the production requirements of dyeing and printing, and she is a frequent contributor to craft magazines. She lives in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Marianne Fassler is a fashion designer whose collections have featured the use of recycled materials and elaborate tie-dyeing methods.


Colorful tie-dyed garments are making a comeback, and author Melanie Brummer shows how to give new life to old garments or very inexpensive sale items that could use a bit of pizzazz.--Jocelynn Brown"Detroit News" (03/08/2011)
Brummer's first book is a comprehensive guide to tie-dying, with clear instructions and multiple color photographs for a series of lovely projects that use a variety of materials, from a throw dyed with a cobweb design to an impressive series of silk scarves. Amazingly, Brummer is able to achieve both rustic and sophisticated looks, and readers who previously thought that tie-dye meant rainbow-splotched shirts adorning Deadheads will be impressed by the variety that can be achieved on (most often) cotton garments with rubber bands and buckets of dye. That said, Brummer focuses here exclusively on tie-dying; there's no batik, resist dying, or even much bleach work to be found. A hundred and forty-four pages is an awful lot of tie-dye, even for the aficionado.-- (01/07/2011)
