When it comes to making adire, several methods are involved, ranging from tieing and stitching the areas that will resist the dye (tie & dye), to the use of wax for the same purpose (Batik). Additional methods also include hand-painted or stenciled designs directly onto the fabric (freehand).  


Marbling is a process of applying different colors of fabric dyes to textiles, in order to beautify and accentuate it looks. The procedures involved in achieving marble designs are straightforward and achievable.

The Materials needed are ;

  1. Fabric
  2. Water
  3. Rubber gloves
  4. Face mask
  5. Fabric dye
  6. Plastic kettle. 

Step 1: Ensure all your materials are ready and available at reach.

Step 2: Wet your white fabric or piece of cloth with water, ensure it absorbs a lot of water. 

Step 3: Spread out the fabric across your work surface, preferable on the floor (a clean space) 

Step 4: Pinch, squeeze and crease your fabric to form the marble fold

Step 5: After you’re done setting your fabric into place, prep your dye and pour the different colors into separate kettles. 

Step 6: Start off with one color (the lightest shade) and strategically pour it, leaving enough white space for other colors, pour on the necessary part before proceeding to the next color

Step 7: Repeat the previous step but with another dye color. After you’re done, leave it out in the sun for 3 minutes before you proceed to the next color.

Step 8: Pour your next color on the fabric and leave it under the sun for at least ten minutes before you rinse out. 

PS: You can use as much color as you desire.

After all these procedures, rinse and dry out the fabric. You can stop at this stage after getting your marble effect or you can go ahead and make batik designs on the fabric after it has dried off properly.
