Ellysse Mason - taking our new 'Tote-ally Tie Dye' tie-dye kit for a spin!

We’ve been asked for tie-dye kits sooo many times that when I was contacted by Ellysse Mason’s manager to see if we’d like to collaborate with her on a dyeing project, it seemed like a perfect time to actually get on and do it!

Ellysse is an amazing singer-songwriter based in Manchester. Her haunting, powerful vocals, writing talents and beautiful guitar give her a unique, captivating sound. Be sure to check her out on tiktok or Instagram.

However, Ellysse’s talents do not end there – it turns out she’s got some serious crafting talents too!

As a thank you to her fans she has personally tie-dyed 100 t-shirts and they’ll be available soon (although you’ll probably have to be quick judging by the fan’s comments!).

I’m often asked if tie-dye is difficult or messy – check out the video on her Instagram page and watch Ellysse using a very nice (white) bathtub and dyeing 100 t-shirts in a lovely kitchen without so much as a splash!

Fantastic results Ellysse and thanks for using our dyes – you have some lucky fans!

If you’d like to have a go yourself you can buy our brand new tie-dye kit here. There’s a cute cotton tote bag in the kit to get you started and plenty of dye and fixer for several t-shirts (maybe not 100!).


Spread the love with a share!
