Calling all hippies and lovers of color! If you’re looking for tie dye activewear, we’ve got what you need right here.
The tie dye pattern can be dated back to 500 AD. Japanese (Shibori), Indonesian (Batik), Indian, Thai and African cultures also have their versions of tie-dye.
Tie dye is characterized by bold primary colors and vibrant designs. In 1909, Professor Charles E. Pellow of Columbia University acquired some tie dye fabrics and explained the process in his teachings at the university.
It wasn’t until the 1960’s and into the 1970’s when tie dye became popular in the hippie movement and symbolized an expression of personality, freedom and love.
Today tie dye represents happiness and the bright colors seemingly uplift the mood in any setting.
Here are our top picks for tie dye leggings, sports bras and more. We hope you love them!
When we make our list of best leggings, we rate them on eco-friendliness, cost, design, performance and fair company ethics (fair pay, equal opportunity, etc.). We only want to share the best for us and our environment with our readers.
