Tie-dye is an ancient art. In Japan they have a form of tie-dye called Shibori they've been using since the 8th century or earlier. Batik is a type of dyeing used for generations in India and is similar to tie-dye. Other techniques associated with tie-dye have been used for hundreds of years in West Africa and other parts of the world. These techniques are the inspiration for 1960's hippie fashion. Tie-dye sure has come a long way.

Different forms of tie-dye have been practiced in India, Japan, and Africa for centuries. The earliest surviving examples, according to the World Shibori Network, include pre-Columbian alpaca, found in Peru, and silk from fourth century Chinese tombs.
Perhaps it was invented in China 618-906 A.D.
