Hi, I'm Turguy Mustafa, doing garment dyeing for the last twenty six years for Prestige Fashion Dyers, and today, I will be giving you some tips about tie dye and garment dyeing. At this type of bag, obviously you're not going to or we're not going to be able to dye because it's complicated, it's got different materials on there, and it's quite bulky so obviously it's not suitable for tie dyeing.
