I am wondering about tie-dye originating in Africa. In India, the
method you describe is in current use, and forms of tie dye such as IKAT
are currently found, and were found in ancient times in places as far
apart as Peru and Bali.
I believe that there are a lot of East Indians in Central Africa, and I
wonder if the tradition arrive with them. Any info would be welcome.
