Best Tie-Dye Shop Making Mats for Those Experiencing Homelessness
Taylor Speed

An eclectic little shop in Anderson Township, Funky Sunshine specializes in homemade local art and lots and lots of rainbow tie-dye creations. Their feel-good, community-minded ethos manifests in fun do-it-yourself dying workshops as well as an ongoing project in service of environmentalism and social advocacy. Funky Sunshine creates mats for fellow Cincinnatians experiencing homelessness, providing a clean, cushy seat or a comfortable layer for underneath sleeping bags. The shop hosts kid- and adult-friendly get-togethers for novice crafters to crochet the mats from recycled plastic grocery bags. Those who can’t make it to a mat-making session can always swing by with bags to donate, since it takes anywhere from 500 to 1,000 of them to craft a single mat. Funky Sunshine, 6448 Sherman Ave., Anderson Township, funkysunshine.com.
