Ombre dyeing is a dip dyeing or gradated dyeing process. It is an effect that is produced by submerging the fabric in dye in a gradual manner so that the dye goes from a light to dark shade producing a unique and original look on the garment or fabric. Ombre dyeing can also be done with multiple colors depending on the desired look.
Ombre dyeing is rapidly gaining popularity; celebrities have been seen wearing Ombre dyed garments in People magazine and numerous other publications. Clothing manufacturers have discovered methods of mass producing Ombre effects, but they do not compare to the hand dyeing process, which is why Metro Dyeing still carefully hand dyes each Ombre project to ensure a genuine and unique result.
