In January of 2020, our founder Maxine felt like she wanted to start doing more with her time. This was pre pandemic and Maxine was working full time already. She wanted to find an outlet to express herself and share her work with the community. In the past, Maxine has never felt like she could find a type of art that she felt she was actually good at. She always loved to do art, but it was more of something to do just for fun. Maxine saw the trend of tie dye and she wanted to make something for herself.
The first sweater made turned out pretty good and she decided to start making for friends and family. At first it was just for fun and something to pass time but when more people started hearing about the custom tie dye and inquiring, she decided to create an Instagram page and begin selling to anyone! Slowly but surely, Maxine started to get more and more orders from people she didn’t know, and she could tell it was going to be a big trend! After a couple months, the global pandemic started to get serious and everyone started working from home. Sales started going crazy as everyone wanted work from home cozies as well as supporting small business. Orders started flowing in and people all over Canada started getting their very own custom DIY DYE!
As the months went on, DIY DYE took part in many collaborations, giveaways, charity events, and much more. DIY DYE loves to give back to the community as much as we can and that is why we are always open to raising money for various causes and using a part of our sales to support many organizations like the Canadian cancer society, front line workers, the daily bread food bank and more.
DIY DYE has always had a vision to create comfortable and trendy clothing while also supporting the community and our customers! We are so grateful for the endless support of our community and can’t wait to see what the future holds for DIY DYE!
