JACKYLN RASMUSSEN - NORTHERN TIES

Jacklyn Rasmussen, Founder of Northern Ties and creator of the TikTok Viral Hoodie

While in quarantine and on furlough, Jacklyn started experimenting with reverse tie dye (or acid wash) fabric treatment--a technique that uses a bleach solution to chemically change fabric colors with organic, one-of-a kind results.

What began as a personal project to satisfy her own creative curiosity soon took on a life of its own once friends, family, and coworkers saw her designs and requested commissioned articles of clothing. Jacklyn soon discovered she had a passion for the process and started bleaching everything. That’s where it all began. Northern Ties was founded in June of 2020, and a little over a month later Northern Ties launched their first official product. Jacklyn left her corporate job in March of 2021 to pursue Northern Ties full time. Check out northerntiesmn.com to learn more about her business and shop her store.
