How I Started a Tie Dye Business

Remember quarantine round one? Watching Tiger King, Outer Banks, making whipped coffees and learning TikTok dances.

Now I don’t know about you, but I also remember seeing a ton of people wearing tie dye. Naturally, I decided to give it a go and make my own tie dye crewneck.

This is how my first one came out and I was in love. I wore it every other day and wanted to make more.

I sent my best friends a photo of the crewneck and they asked me to make them some so that is exactly what I did.

I found a website to order plain white hoodies, stocked up on tie dye colors and got to work. They came out better than I expected and I could not wait to ship them out.

These are the very first ones I sold and let me just say I wish I had one for myself in every color. My friends went above and beyond, having mini photoshoots in cars, outside, and in their bedrooms each showing off their custom outfit I had made for them.

Eventually they convinced me to start an Instagram shop. I was very skeptical but what did I have to lose?

I made an Instagram account called @debaesthetics and started posting the pieces I would make. My friends started messaging me and placing orders. Before I knew it, I had a small tie dye business.
