The talented American artist Inez Harwood has set a Guinness World record by creating the world’s longest tie-and-dye piece of cloth under her Liberty project, which strives to spread awareness about America’s dying textile industry.
 
Woven in South Carolina’s Inman Mills with 100 percent domestically grown cotton, the approximately 950 pounds heavy tie-and-dye cloth was made of using 120 pounds of dye and 8,000 zip-ties.
 
Breaking Tokushima Japan’s record holding 2739 feet and five inches long cloth, the all-American manufactured piece of fabric is 3120 feet in length with a towering breadth of 5 foot 5 inches.
 
Harwood’s ‘Liberty’ project is a part of her Vibrant Protest series, which aims to raise awareness about the social, political and economic environment that has destroyed the United States’ cotton textile industry over the past 30 years.
 
Liberty will be exhibited for public viewing at Utah’s Woodbury Art Museum, which serves as an educative resource library for art enthusiasts, from March 2013 onwards.
