    I think you are looking at batik- not tie dye. Batik is a method using wax and long story short, the end result is crinkles and lines in the fabrics design. Batik was commong in the 60-70s and is still a great fabric design tool today. It is a longer process than tie dye.

    you are welcome. A good thing to know is that a nicely done batik piece usually sells for more than tie dye. It is a harder craft to perfect. Good luck.
