Keep checking back as we’ll be featuring some of our vendors over the next few weeks!
You’ve heard of tie dying, but what about ice dying? Ice dye is the art of placing ice cubes on top of fabric, then sprinkling dye powder on top of the ice and letting the melting process dictate how the dye splits and bleeds and where it ultimately lands on the fabric – leading to surprising and delightful results every time! In addition to t-shirts Diane also sells hats, visors, earrings, baby onesies, and bags.
Other vendors include:
