Carter Smith

Carter Smith has been dyeing one-of-a-kind fabrics since 1965 when he learned tie-dye techniques from his mother. Originally working in silk, he created and sold 30,000 individual stretched pieces and banners, eventually adding to his process over forty new steps that multiplied into over a thousand techniques.

After successfully helping launch the careers of several designers, Carter decided to start making his own clothing, and now sells his hand-dyed original fashions both nationally and internationally. Notables who own his creations include Elizabeth Taylor, Jane Fonda, Aretha Franklin, Allie McGraw, Alice Walker, Dionne Warwick, Maya Angelou, Sarah Jessica Parker, Susan Taylor, Goldie Hawn, Jesse Norman, Jada Pinkett-Smith, Anne Austin, Kim Novak, Cassandra Wilson, Mary Travers, Jan Robinson, Mick Jagger, Rod Stewart, and others.

Today, Carter has over 250 original bias design concepts and creations, and after 40 years and over 200,000 yards of fabric personally dyed by Carter, his passion remains stronger than ever. He has been featured in many publications over the years, most recently in Ornament Magazine (June 2009).
