Announcement   Hello, and thanks for checking out Little Rainbows Tie-Dyes! I use the highest quality professional-grade dyes and dye-fixative solutions available on every item, and do extra steps in my tie-dyeing process so that I can offer a 100% guarantee that no Little Rainbows item will ever run or bleed onto other laundry items, even on the first wash. This also means that the bold, vibrant colors you see in the photos will be just as bright after many trips through the laundry! I also use the highest quality (and always preshrunk) clothing items I can find ; Hanes Beefy-T's, Carter's baby clothes, and Dharma Trading Company items, mostly. My buyers at children's boutiques and local craft shows come back year after year for Little Rainbows' style and enduring quality. Happy shopping!

Hi, and welcome to Little Rainbows Tie-dyes! I always aim for buyers who are so happy with their Little Rainbows purchases that they return and purchase from my shop again and again! I will do whatever I can to achieve my goal of a happy buyer, every time.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
Payment
At this time, I am accepting payments via Paypal, which will allow you to pay with the balance of your own Paypal account, or if you don't have a Paypal acct., you can choose to pay with your credit or debit card, as a guest of Paypal.
Shipping
My shipping charges are based on First Class Mail pricing, plus the cost of the packaging in which I will send the order (I purchase in bulk to keep that inexpensive for you.) If you need something Priority Mailed, please contact me via Etsy PRIOR to purchasing, and I will adjust the shipping charge(s) on the item(s) you wish to buy to reflect Priority Mail pricing. In that case, please make sure to purchase your item(s) right away (as soon as I've changed the shipping cost for the listing,) so that I can get your order Priority Mailed to you ASAP.

For shipping to destinations within the 48 contiguous U.S. states, please allow 2 weeks from the time I receive your payment in full for delivery of your item(s), although in most cases it won't take that long.

EXCEPTION: CHRISTMAS TIME! DURING THE MONTH OF DECEMBER, I WILL MAKE EVERY EFFORT TO SHIP YOUR ITEM OUT THE VERY NEXT DAY AFTER I HAVE RECEIVED YOUR PAYMENT IN FULL! AFTER THAT, IT'S UP THE THE U.S. POST OFFICE. USUALLY, IT WILL ARRIVE WITHIN A FEW DAYS, DEPENDING ON HOW FAR IT HAS TO TRAVEL FROM INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA. ONCE AGAIN, IF YOU NEED IT PRIORITY MAILED, PLEASE LET ME KNOW BEFORE PURCHASING THE ITEM(S)!!

For destinations outside the 48 contiguous U.S. states, I will convo and/or email you when your order has been shipped out. I will usually send your order First Class Mail, so delivery times will vary according to destination. I can make no guarantees regarding international shipping, except that I will send your item out within 2 business days of receiving your payment, unless the ready-to-ship time is marked otherwise for the item(s) you are purchasing, or it is a custom order.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are unsatisfied with your Little Rainbows order for any reason, please return it for a full refund; I prefer that you ship it back to me within 72 hours of receiving it (meaning that it's POST-MARKED within 72 hours, not that I have to receive it within that time frame, of course.) You must pay for the shipping cost to return it to me, unless I have made a mistake and sent you the wrong item or a different size than what you ordered.
Additional policies and FAQs
REGARDING MY CLAIM THAT ALL LITTLE RAINBOWS TIE-DYES ARE PRESHRUNK AND GUARANTEED COLORFAST:

The items I buy from my suppliers come already preshrunk by the manufacturer. I use a 3-step dye-fixative process on every item I make, to ensure that there is no unbonded dye left in the fabric, which could then bleed onto your skin or other clothing items in the laundry. Here's my process: after soaking the items in a pre-dye solution of soda ash and water (which prepares the fabric to accept the dyes,) I tie and dye them with high-quality procion dyes, and then allow the dyes to set into the fabric for at least 24 hrs. I then rinse them first in hot, then warm, then cool water, for about half an hour. Next, I machine wash them in SUPER-HOT water, with a special textile detergent called Synthrapol, which washes out any and ALL unbonded dye. Then, they are soaked for 20 minutes in a mixture of water and final dye fixative solution (called Dharma Dye Fixative, :-) ,) which ensures that the dyes are set into the fabric forever! That solution is then thoroughly rinsed out, and finally, they are dried on the medium heat setting of my dryer. You may wash your Little Rainbows tie-dye in any temperature of water you choose (although cold water wash is recommended for maximum color preservation,) and please dry it on medium heat. Although, as I stated, my clothing items are preshrunk, it is possible to shrink even preshrunk items further if you dry them on HIGH heat (especially in a commercial dryer.)

My supplies come from Dharma Trading Company, and are the best to be found anywhere! Dharma Trading Company is the original tie-dye supplier in the U.S.; they've been around since the 1960's!! That's why my tie-dyes are so vibrantly colored, and why the color lasts and lasts. I do often state in my listings that your Little Rainbows tie-dye will fade very little over time, which is not to say that it won't fade AT ALL, EVER; ALL dyed fabric will eventually fade at least a little, over long periods of time, or after many, many cycles through the wash. However, your Little Rainbows item will fade much less than most machine-dyed shirts, and less than any tie-dye you may purchase from a seller who doesn't employ all of the dye-fixative steps I use.
