Rajesh Dahiya | Saroj Yadav


Abstract: Tie and dye is one of the most widely accepted traditional techniques of surface enrichment of textiles in India. Different colors are used in this technique to impart decorative effect to the fabric and colour choice can be highly individual and hence is a means of self expression. Tie and dye not only provides a scope for individual expression and creativity but can also be taken as an avenue for household income by women. Present study was conducted in Fatehabad district of Haryana state. Total 75 respondents were selected randomly for vocational training i. e.25 each from Sahnal, Bahbalpur and Salamkhera villages. Vocational training on surface enrichment of fabrics through tie and dye technique were organized for five days in each village. Total nine tyeing techniques were demonstrated practically and supported by expert lectures and scientific literature. Highest post exposure knowledge was found in thread tyeing and knotting techniques i. e.95.00 percent, majority of the respondents acquired high level of skill regarding tie and dye after completion of training. Perceived adoption feasibility was found highest for compatibility (81.22 %). Overall adoption feasibility was found 84.89 percent on all attributes. Design preference was found highest for thread tyeing (MS 3.86) and marbling technique (MS 3.70), respectively.
