What is Leheriya?
Leheriya is a widely known variation of design in fabrics that is produced using the basic technique of tie and dye. The term Leheriya is derived from the Hindi word `leliai`; meaning `wave`. The dyer creates wave-like patterns by producing diagonal stripes on the fabric. This process is practised in Jodhpur, Jaipur and Udaipur. The leheriya was patronised in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries by the Marvari merchant class of Rajasthan, who wore turbans of brightly coloured leheriya fabric.
To create diagonal stripes, the craftsmen of Rajasthan uses a special method of resist-dyeing, wherein the material is generally a turban or sari length that is rolled up diagonally across opposite corners and then tied tightly at intervals before the actual dyeing process begins. Delicate, light fabrics such as thin cotton voile, fine silk and chiffon are usually preferred, as they allow the colour to penetrate through the rolled cloth. The fabric is wrapped around a wooden pole, usually while it is still wet, though it may also be in a semi-dry or dry state. The thread that ties up the fabric acts as a resist, yielding a pattern of diagonal stripes after dyeing. The thickness of the thread and the distance between the ties may be varied to obtain snipes of different widths.
