How we TIE DYE REED

Jill Choate Basketry

Sure you can find space dyed reed but where can you find TIE DYED REED?

The richness of layered dyes is what our TIE DYED REED is all about.  TIE DYED REED has intense colors.  Not only are they intense but they marbleize together to make an entirely different color scheme with overtones in light and dark.  

It's pretty remarkable dyed reed and we are the only ones that create it (as far as we know).  

It takes a lot of work and time to create.  It's a unique process that involves pressure and 3 days worth of overlaying dyes at just the right time and temperature to achieve that vibrancy.

We ONLY create TIE DYED REED in the summer months because the heat makes the dye permeate the reed more deeply in warm weather.  Deep color is what we're all about.  Color that sinks in and stays in long after other dyes have faded off into the sunset.

We figure if you are taking the time to create a hand crafted basket it deserves the best dyed reed available.  

VIBRANT - INTENSE - DEEP COLOR - that's us (but only for a limited time).  When the cooler weather comes in we close up the dye shop.

LIMITED DYE BATCHES - LIMITED TIME AVAILABILITY - SO WORTH IT.

We've just finished up a batch of both of our tie dyed colors.  You can grab yours by clicking here
