From the CBC archives: Chip & Pepper's tubular tie dye fashions, 1989
Twin brothers Chip and Pepper Foster and their tie dye fashions were all the rage in Winnipeg in the late 80s and early 90s. But the Chip and Pepper brand is more commonly known for its popular distressed boot cut denim jeans.
Back then, the two fashionistas' wares were stocked and often sold out in local clothing stores.
They inevitably attracted international attention and began selling their unique designs to the stars.
The brothers created their own line of BBQ sauces and even inked a deal with NBC, where they produced a Saturday morning cartoon show which lasted one season.
The two also had a clothing store for five years in Kenora, Ont. which closed its doors in 2013.
Take a trip back to tie-dye era Winnipeg and relive the bright and swirly magic with this CBC vault video.
