MADE is here to support entrepreneurs in making their dreams a reality. Our custom dye program takes our quality Ready to Dye blanks and, working with talented local dye houses, we make your vision come to life. We can dye anything you want, so we encourage creativity and imagination. This is how MADE’s custom dye program gets the perfect color and wash every time.
Our Ready to Dye blanks are specially designed and meticulously manufactured down to how we source our cotton. Our Ready to Dye garments are finished with cotton stitching which allows the threads to dye the same color as the fabric. The dye machines and washes can be very turbulent, so there’s also stitching reinforcements in the hoodie to ensure the best results. From our durable and modern Recess Hoodie, to our classic Major Tee, we have many Ready to Dye garments to choose from.
MADE works hand-in hand with the best local dye houses in LA to ensure that all of our blanks have the highest quality color and wash. We want to highlight the incredible work that these local dye houses do and show you what goes into the dying process with a behind the scenes look inside their facilities.
The process of dying garments has been around since 34,000 BC, starting with dyed flax fibers found in a prehistoric cave. Historically, dyes come from plants, minerals, and insects, but the dye process has come a long way since then. Today, our garments are dyed using a Rotary Garment Dyeing Machine. A rotating cylinder helps to control the amount of dye being used and ensures that multiple garments are dyed evenly. This Garment Dye Machine was made in Korea in 1986 and is still in use giving MADE’s blanks their color today.
