SUSTAINABLE + ETHICAL TIE DYE 🌏
If anything should be made with sustainable and ethical practices it should be your tie dyes! All of my dyes are eco-friendly. I use substantially less water with our amazing little eco washer, using only about 8oz of water to rinse up to three large pieces! All of our pieces are made to order and we recycle all of our fabric so materials never go to waste. Our soda ash, a vital step to tie dying, is ethically sourced from an amazing local company here in Utah. Really everything we do here at Desert Dyes comes with conscious thought regarding the earth!

Desert Dyes

Hi I'm Lo! Owner and designer here at Desert Dyes. It is my passion to create one of a kind pieces that are functional, everlasting + inspire you to be your authentic self! I live to create clothing that allows you to feel powerful being the one of a kind human you are!

Desert Dyes makes its home in Salt Lake City, Utah. Run on girl power, each item is hand tied and dyed by my two hands! I started D|D to bring more color to the world after a difficult time in my life. Since then, this creative outlet has flourished and become the dream I always dreamt of. Being able to create art and clothing that might inspire someone has brought me so much joy and I hope you feel that in my designs.

Since starting Desert Dyes in me and my high school sweethearts first tiny apartment in 2018 it has grown to become our little family business. Kirby has become an essential part of the operation and an amazing tie dyer! We love being able to work and create together in our little studio. Every purchase fuels our life and really makes a difference to us! We are so thankful for you and all your help in growing our little family run business!

Are the dyes safe for infants + those with sensitive skin?

Yes! Our non-toxic, eco-friendly dyes are safe for infants and those with sensitive skin! Additionally we make sure to fully rinse and wash all excess dye particles out! We use a sensitive skin, eco-friendly detergent as well! We also recommend that you wash your item before use just to be safe!

Eco-Friendly Tie Dye

We use eco-friendly dyes and a majority of cotton! Cotton is biodegradable and holds up amazingly over time, it also gets softer with every wash! We source from companies that recycle their water and make genuine effort to stay eco-friendly. We use significantly less water with our eco-washer and water usage methods. With everything we do here at D|D we keep the earth in mind!
