Looks like tie-dye isn’t just for fashion. Once the hallmark of hippies and tree-huggers, this once-modest motif has reached runway status and now home decor. The process of tie-dye is just how it sounds – fabric is literally tied off and dyed. Folding, twisting, or pleating the material and binding it with string or rubber bands creates a pattern that’s at once organic looking and vaguely reminiscent of an ink blot.
Spotted in glossy decorating magazines, the print’s latest iteration is more boutique hotel than Grateful Dead tee shirt. Case in point, the Raine Throw from Levtex seen here. Available in a deep indigo hue with a white pattern, this tie-dye throw blanket has the look of a treasured textile bought on a far-flung adventure. This blanket measures 50″ x 60″ and thanks to the hand-dyeing process, no two blankets will be the same. Its groovy vibe would be just right in a summer cottage, or as a quick seasonal update at home as you pack away winter’s thick wool blankets.
As throw blankets are more accessory than show-stopper, it’s also a great piece for trying out a new trend. Make it the right move if throwing down major cash for a full tie-dye sheet set or expensive new upholstery gets your nerves going. At just $39, there’s a bigger chance you’ll be making an Instagram-worthy change to your living room than catching a case of buyer’s remorse.
