Where can you buy dyes for tie-dye?

Where can you buy dyes for tie-dye?

There’s nothing worse than wanting to tie-dye but not having the means to do it. You are ready and willing but there’s only one thing missing : you don’t have dyes. Where do you actually purchase these dyes? What if you’re not in the United States and you have trouble finding them? We have compiled this list of dye vendors to help you find what you need to start your tie-dye journey no matter where you are in the world. This will ensure you with responsiveness and fast shipping times.

Many of these companies offer dyes, as well as other tie-dye supplies like soda ash, fabric, bottles, alginate, sinew, and more. Most of the companies listed accept orders on their website and all have order quantities suitable for home dyers. We invite you to check out the companies that are closer to your geographical location so the shipping is cheaper. If there are no such companies nearby you can always rely on the large North American suppliers that ship internationally.

North America

Since the continent is so vast we have separated it between east and west coast to make sure you have the best shipping times. Buy your dyes here if you are from the United States or Canada. We have bought from and can personally vouch for PRO chemical & dye located on the east coast and Dharma Trading located on the west coast.

Eurasia

We didn’t find many companies selling dyes, especially in continental Asia. What we did find however are two amazing companies in the Philippines that sell tie-dye supplies as well as finished products. These two companies feature talented artists and are worth checking out.

Philippines

Company : Trippy dyes

While this company has a website, you will need to call them to place an order. They offer a range of dyes.

Oceania

We found only one retail seller of fiber-reactive dyes in the Oceania region, more specifically in Australia. The company seems reliable.

Australia

Company : Kraftkolour
Email : info@kraftkolour.com.au
Address : Whittlesea | Victoria 3757

The company Kraftkolour ships internationally, has a good selection of supplies and a large selection of silk fabric.

South Africa

We had trouble finding a dye seller in Africa, but the one we found seems reliable and has been in business for a few years.

Company : The Craft Connexion
Email
: info@thecraftconnexion.com
Address : 37 Voortrekker Avenue | Edenvale, 1609

They offer dyes and fixative, but do not seem to sell other supplies like bottles or string.

Final thoughts

If you didn’t find a dye seller near you, keep in mind that most major companies will ship internationally. This will inflate the cost if you live far away so you may need to order larger quantities to make up for it. We hope that the market for dyes will become more decentralized in the future and that every region of the glove will have an easy and abundant supply.

In some parts of the world we didn’t find nearly as many reliable dye suppliers as we would have liked. There seems to be a lack of companies especially in South America, continental Europe and in regions of Asia. The language barrier also added to the difficulty of our research, so maybe there are companies that we just weren’t able to locate. If you know companies in these regions that we missed, please let us know so we can add them to the list.
