Took a stab at Tie Dye today for a friend. Turned out a little sloppy, but the spiral on the back came through pretty well. Tie Dying a gi is definitely a different breed of animal than tie dying a t-shirt. The collar presents some challenges, as does the weight of the fabric.

I did this one gratis for a friend, who was gracious enough to allow me to experiment on his gi.

    Why should I not try to tie-dye my own gi? It is super expensive to have one sent to get dyed or buy one from Happy Kimonos.

      You should give it a go. There’s nothing stopping you, if you have the time, and are willing to take the chance of ruining a gi. I’d start with an inexpensive or old gi, just to work out your technique.
