About

Inspired by Color!

Inspiring Color Tie Dye is a shop filled with high-quality clothing, accessories and bedding that is individually dyed by hand by Jill Matteson. Each item is custom dyed by size and/or color and design. Here's a little history:

Inspiring Color started in the spring of 2007. Zach and Jill Matteson, a mother/son team, started tie dyeing clothing to raise money to support Zach's budding violin talent -- primarily to help pay for summer music programs. We loved the color and process so much, the name and the business was born!

Now, Zach is a professional violinist working and studying at the Butler School of Music in Austin, Texas. His quartet, Invoke, occasionally enjoys sporting an Inspiringcolor t-shirt -- and he remains my chief artistic consultant. Now, his little brother, Zephan, is helping and learning the ropes.

Inspiring Color recently moved from the little town of Luling, Texas -- home of the annual Watermelon Thump festival and inspiration for our watermelon designs -- to a beautiful historic farm in Havre de Grace, Maryland. Check out our new shop video to see the location and learn about the process!

Welcome to our shop! We strive to create high-quality stunning tie-dye that our customers will love and that will last and last. We do our best to use the highest quality shirts, garments, fabrics and dyes.

All of our items, unless specifically noted, are custom dyed for you by size and color. The pictures serve as examples of the item, but each one be uniquely yours -- same design and colors, but in your size and uniquely dyed. This process takes a little longer, as we keep a small inventory, so we have 1-2 week turnaround on most items (some a little longer such as sheets and sweatshirts/hoodies). If you need something rushed or for a specific date, please let us know and will do everything we can to accommodate you.

We dye using fiber reactive dye. It's a chemical process that actually changes the color of the fibers, making them colorfast. We wash our garments twice after dying, once using a special textile detergent to remove excess dye and a second time with vinegar and fabric softener. Altogether, the garments are washed twice times in hot water and rinsed six times, creating preshrunk and colorfast items.

Nevertheless, despite all of our precautions, occasionally there will be some residual dye left in your garment. To avoid staining, make sure you machine wash clothing in warm water with like colors and don't leave the them sitting wet in the washer or dripping dry. If there is residual dye, it can transfer to other clothing or muddle the design on the tie dye. This care should only be necessary the first two or three times you wash and you should feel confident afterwards. If in doubt, you can test by throwing an old white sock or rag in the washer.

Special Note: Silk and rayon garments, scarves, veils, etc. should be machine washed on delicate in a mesh garment bag and left to air dry. If you choose to handwash and there is bleeding the first few times, be sure to rinse until the water runs clear and blot well or spin the excess water out to avoid dripping.

It's Very Important to note that the bleeding, if it occurs, is only residual non-reacted dye. Your garment is not fading and will be bold and stunning for the lifetime of the garment.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel to contact us.
