Siargao Vibes and Handmade Tie-Dye: The Tiediet x Gwapitos Collection

Shayne Lopez's design process is rooted with love for color and the emotional effect it can have on people. Drawing inspiration from food and nature, as well as incorporating an incantation of love and gratitude into the designs.

The role of color and patterns in Tiediet's designs is evident in each piece. Shayne's creative approach and personal touch make every Tiediet product unique and one-of-a-kind.

Tiediet, a small business founded in 2013, is known for its hand-made tie-dye products that reflect the founder's love for color and creativity. With a focus on incorporating love and gratitude into every design, Tiediet has become a favorite among tie-dye enthusiasts and fashion lovers.

With the latest collaboration with Gwapitos, where we celebrate the surf and beach culture of Siargao Island, brings together the unique styles of both brands. Founder Shayne Lopez's creativity and design aesthetic are the driving force behind the collection.

1. Can you tell us a little bit about the history and mission of Tiediet?
Back when I was in college (2013) I used to love buying clothes in thrift stores. But I didn’t want it to be plain. So I did various experiments like tie-dying, bleaching, and tattering. Then overtime I’ve made my own patterns for tie-dye. Also worked with denim.

2. How do you approach the design process when creating your hand-made tie-dye products?
Well basically I just love color. And how different color combinations can have so much effect on you. I’m mostly inspired by food and nature. Also I put an incantation to mix with “Love and Gratitude”. So the good vibes are there.

3. How did you go about merging the aesthetics of Tiediet and Gwapitos to create the collaboration collection?
Gwapitos is Siargao-based. So I had to make the shirts that reflected that. I chose specific colors that feel chill and vibrant.
Also then patterns to be wavy.

4. What are your personal favorite pieces from the Tiediet x Gwapitos collection and why?

Fresh Water! Since it’s simple and a perfect classic piece.
