Brutalist TieDye Fashion

At Violent TieDye™ we make the tie dye t-shirts that the other tie dye t-shirts are afraid of. We understand that consumers expect a bunch of rainbows and flowers and peacenik crap from a tie-dye company, but we gave you the rainbows and in the wild and cut-throat world of tie dye, where every day is an adventure that could stab you in the spleen, getting one thing out of three right isn't half bad. Confused yet? We admit to being a little confusing at times because times are weird and we've got San Francisco rent to pay. And that's why we take our frustration out on our t-shirts making them asymmetric, dark, and weird like the world in which we live.

From T-Shirt to TieDye™

When they arrive at our San Francisco dyeing facillity, our humanely sourced cotton t-shirts are white and delightsome. We put an end to that.

To begin, we shout profanities at our t-shirts, throw them in a mild bleach and baking soda solution, and wash the fuck out of them at high temperatures so that they are shrunken, beaten, and ready to submit to our Dyemaster's dyeing processes.

While the exact nature of our dyeing processes is a trade secret, we will disclose that it takes place entirely in San Francisco, CA and involves a certain amount of industrial music and often quite a lot of black dye, bleach, profanity, nitrous oxide, and the over consumption of ethanol-containing beverages. Your garment will be badly traumatized.

After being rinsed with fuck-tons of cold water to remove latent dyes from the fabric, our products are subject to one last terrifying hot water wash with unscented detergent and then are permitted to air dry in the cool San Francisco climate. While drying, they may be subject to enduring dissonant shoegaze or horror rap. When fully dried, they will be met with disappointment and told that they're not good enough. Some of them will then be smashed as flat as possible with a hot iron and abandoned, as are all great works of art. Such items are then trafficked on the gray market.

If you are looking for a badly abused tie-dyed garment that is inspired by actual hipppies wearing actual street fashion as observed by DeathKultLeader™ David who frequents the real Haight Ashbury and pays real San Francisco prices, you've come to the right place.
