From the global fashion perspective, many countries have already established their own tie-dye styles. On the contrary, Indonesia with their strong culture in textile hasn't had their own tie-dye style that is known worldwide. The aim of this research is developing a new technique by integrating pattern and texture design principles in tie-dyed textile so that the textile could have the attractive potential towards the wider individuals as a wearable art. This experimental method will be done in four stages of the experimental research consist of: 1) Data collection; 2) Technique and material experiment; 3) Tie-dyed fabric development; 4) Implementation of the tie-dyed fabric into a ready-to-wear Outer apparel. The final result of the experiment is a tie-dyed Organza silk made into a ready-to-wear Outer with extra fabric manipulations without altering the characteristics yet enhance the shape of the textile by the Gathering techniques with the result of wrinkled and bubbly texture. Furthermore, the texture has the ability to cover the printed pattern developed from the tie-dye technique for both the perfect and imperfect pattern made from the improper binding technique. Consequently, by the fabric manipulation applied, the same idea could aid the problem of unsellable defective tie-dyed pattern faced by the traditional textile craftsmen.
