Tie dye designs on blank clothing are increasingly popular amongst clothing designers. Tie dye has come of age! Along with traditional spirals and stars, in bright, bold colours, muted and sophisticated patterns and shades are now taking centre stage. Knowing how to tie dye and getting great results, lies in the quality of the materials, the type of dye used, and of course the right technique. You can find some great tips on our blog, How To Tie Dye.
The Baby Blanks™ range of wholesale kids clothing has developed a reputation for providing clothing designers with a consistently high quality blank base, which gets great results with a range of embroidery, printing and applique. We have a range of wholesale customers, specialising in tie dye, who rely on our high quality cotton jersey. Most of the Baby Blanks™ baby and kids clothing designs are available in white.
With so much cheap manufacturing, clothing designers can spend a lot of time searching for a reliable wholesale clothing business to source their blank clothing. Consistent quality is really important for designers in order to build a reputation and a loyal following for their designs. High quality tie dye results can be consistently achieved with clothing made from higher quality cotton jersey with a high GSM.
The Best Cotton For Tie Dye
For the best tie dye results on blank clothes, smooth cotton jersey is by far the best base. Cotton jersey is a knit cotton with one smooth side and a pile side (which is more uneven). Most cotton t shirts are made from cotton jersey fabric. However, not all cotton jersey is equal.
GSM is a way of measuring the weight of a fabric. It measures grams per square metre. The higher the GSM, the more closely woven the cotton. The GSM also determines how insulating a fabric is and whether it is better suited for warm, cool weather, or trans seasonal clothing.
Baby & Kids Clothes For Tie Dye
Baby Blanks™ cotton jersey is manufactured to provide a smooth surface for tie dye and most other printing applications. All our cotton has a high GSM, ranging from 180 GSM up to 320 GSM (for all our winter styles). Most of our designs are a perfect weight to be worn throughout the year, providing warmth in winter and lightweight, breathable comfort in summer. The close weave makes it easy to achieve high quality dyeing and printing results. It also means all our wholesale kids clothing is sturdy, will not pill, or stretch out of shape, and will stand up to repeated machine washing. Short sleeve baby onesies, bandana bibs, long back tee, muscle tank, basic hoodies, slouch beanies, slouch rompers, and cotton bags, are one of the most popular blank baby and kids clothes to use for tie dye.
