Diamond Dyes, c. 1880s

Does anyone dye clothing anymore? I think RIT dye is still available in the supermarket. I imagine dyeing clothing was once a great way to save money and revive an old style into something new and fresh. Tie-dyeing was hot in the 1960s, of course, but I think dyeing of any clothing is more of a niche/crafty thing these days.
