What is "Ice Dye"?

Ice Dyeing is a fascinating and innovative technique in the field of batik that makes it possible to create unique and diverse patterns and color effects on textiles. Unlike traditional tie-dye methods that apply dyes directly to the fabric, the ice dye process uses ice to produce interesting and often unpredictable results.

In this technique of dyeing fabrics, color pigments are sprinkled onto ice or snow that is placed over the textile to be dyed. As the ice melts, the color powder slowly dissolves and flows across the fabric, creating unique patterns and gradients. This method offers an excellent opportunity to experiment with colors and designs, as each piece becomes unique due to the random melting process of the ice.
