A popular feature in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was the ability to dye Link’s clothes different colors, adding a slight touch of personalization, and it’s back in its sequel, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. Here’s how to dye clothing.

How do I dye Link’s clothes in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom?

You must visit the dye shop. Located in Hateno Village in the Necluda region (map coordinates 3409, -2150, 0121), the Kochi Dye Shop is available for all of your fashion needs. Your Paraglider Fabric can also be changed here if you’ve unlocked any.

Head inside, speak to Sayge, and select “Dye these clothes” to start the process. You’ll need to fork over 20 Rupees. Choose the “please dye” option, and you’ll be shown a list of dyes that you can apply to Link’s clothing. These include regular tones like black, white, and brown and also vivid ones such as pink, purple, and orange if you want to stand out from the crowd. You can’t dye select clothing pieces, only the entire outfit as a whole.

With your color chosen, select five materials that are the same color as the dye to create it. I decided to go with Link’s classic green, which required green materials, so I handed over five Hylian Herbs because I had a ton of them from exploring. With that, Sayge will literally drop the hero into a dye bucket and dye his clothes.

Can I revert dyed clothing to its original color in Tears of the Kingdom?

Yes! To do so, speak with Sayge, select “dye these clothes” and then “back to the original.” Pay the 20 Rupee fee.

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is available now on the Nintendo Switch. If you want Link’s iconic horse, here’s how to get Epona.
