Leheriya Love

Derived from the word ‘leher,’ meaning waves, Leheriya is a tie and dye technique originating in Rajasthan. Leheriya is a resist-dye technique, where the fabric is tied diagonally from one end, and immersed in the dye. The resist is removed to reveal diagonal stripes. Eco-friendly, azo-free dyes are used.  The colours used in making Leheriyas and Motharas are usually bright and captivating, to contrast the region’s arid desert landscape. The most popular leheriya patterns are diagonal and chevron, and are sought-after by design enthusiasts around the globe. This artform employs a wrap-resist dyeing technique in which typically white, thin cotton or silk fabrics act as the canvas for irregular, colourful stripe designs. First, the cloth is diagonally folded across one corner to the other, after which it is rolled into a tight coil and tied with thread at regular intervals. Once the initial prep of folding and rolling is completed, a dye/colour is applied only in a particular pattern on the cloth. Talking Threads Leheriya collection remains true to the intensive handcrafted dyeing techniques, while modernising the colour palette and fusing it with heritage embroidery crafts of marori, gota and tilla. The collection offers timeless sarees, dupattas and kurta sets.
