The TS Designs Garment Dyeing Facility hosts over 11 dye machines ready to tackle your brand’s dye needs.

In addition to offering dyeing for production over 60 pounds, we offer color-matching, softening and competitive U.S. pricing.

We do all of this in downtown Burlington, North Carolina, just down the road from TS Designs’ headquarters. We operate the last garment dye facility in the south and  took over the space about 6 years ago. Located in an old textile facility in downtown Burlington, the facility was originally built to knit and dye socks.

Now we dye everything from wool berets for the military to organic cotton bandannas for indie designers.
