Ombre dip dying has been trending in both the fashion and beauty industry for quite some time. The free spirited trend has suddenly made a comeback in the interior decor market. In the 60′s and 70′s dip dying had been a very popular technique. The dip dying technique adds color hues without compromising the natural beauty of many textiles. The process is fairly simple but not to be overlooked. Check out Michael Penney Style’s Dip Dye Tutorial, along with other inspirational images. Along with dyed ribbons we are proud to sell Rit-Dye both online and at our flagship store.

M&J Trimmings teamed up with Edie and her team to show us how we can dye M&J’s silk ribbon,with RIT Dye, to make various patterns and combinations. She demonstrates how to iron the ribbons into a fabric mosaic panel that can be used to embellish almost anything from handbags to jewelry to gloves and back again. You can also dye your own fabric mosaic and trims to match your mood or event. Its easy and a lot of fun to do.
