Tie-dye workshop at Boxpark, held by Monkee Genes, sponsored by Rekorderlig
Last weekend myself and a friend were invited to a tie-dye workshop sponsored by Rekorderlig.
You all know I’m a big fan of the fruit cider, so I was excited to hear about them sponsoring an ethical clothing brand called Monkee Genes. I knew a little about the brand as their jeans are sold in Topshop, but I was very interested to hear more about a brand that made organic clothing (yes, that is a thing) and cared about the people that make their items.
Tie-dye is popping up all over the place again this season, so of course I wanted to tie-dye some creations of my own.
My tie-dye creations – a pair of Monkee Genes, and a pair of socks*
The event was in association with an amazing group called Neon Stash.
Our lovely tutor for the afternoon was so energetic and chatty that she really made the event!
Everyone was given a t-shirt to tie-dye, and I was also given some jeans (by Monkee Genes) and some socks.
I was ready to tie-dye! I wanted to go for something subtle that I knew would fit my personal style easily.
I choose pink and purple for my jeans – I used the ye’old crumple tie-dye effect – and dip-dyed some socks yellow.
I didn’t want to post a full-on photo of the jeans as I want to reveal them in an OOTD post.
That is, as soon as I get them altered, as they’re about a foot longer than my legs right now.
I had a brilliant time and so did my friend.
You brought me back to the days of my childhood when tie-dye ran supreme.
What do you all think of my tie-dye creations?
