About

It's not your typical tiedye

Embrace life. Stand out. Be joyful. Wear color.

What a blessing it is to be able to pursue and share my passion for color. Even though I've been dyeing for a while, there is still wonder and magic in every piece - whether it's a single skein of yarn, pulling the maki-age shibori stitches from a tee, unwrapping the arashi pipe, or the meditation of choosing beads for a Soba - it delights me. There is wonder and magic. And joy.

Each piece is dyed with love and care and attention to detail. It's a special responsibility to create a piece of clothing or hank of yarn, something so personal, something so unique... But at the end, each garment I put in my shop has only one job - and that's to make you feel fabulous. And if it's a skein of yarn, its purpose is to become something wonderful in your hands.

So what about me? I'm Diana of Dye Diana Dye. I live in Atlanta, my studio is my home, and I'm happily married to a brilliant man, who is a mad inventor and exceptional musician.

I love coffee. And chocolate. And handmade soap.

Thank you for visiting.

Curious about Shibori?
Shibori is the ancient Japanese technique of creating resists for dye. I use hand-stitched resists, such as ori-nui (running stitch over folded cloth, for spirals, stems, and other lines and curves), hira-nui (running stitch on a single layer of cloth, for lines), maki-nui (chevron lines), awase-nui (intersecting arcs, for leaves), ne-maki (little circles), maki-age (bound fabric within a shape for flowers), and mokume-nui (parallel rows of running stitch, for wood grain like striations).
