A visual interpretation of ‘waves of water and cool air’, Lehariya sarees are traditional tie and dye sarees from colorful Rajasthan. These tie and dye lehariya sarees are characterized by their wavy patterns and distinctive bright colors. Conceived in the 19th century, attire that solely belonged to the Marwari community in Rajasthan and the Rajasthani royal class who preferred wearing blue leheriya attire as a mark of their elite class, Lehariya sarees continues to be the coveted choice for festivals and other special occasions even today. Depending on the craftsmen’s skill and creativity, each lehariya saree though it consists of simple stripe pattern, gets unique look with vivid colors, fresh patterns and vibrant designs and portrays a sense of joy and happiness. Created on soft and light fabrics, they are a preferred wear in warmer climates and have a global appeal. Known as the shopper’s delight, Leheriya sarees at Shatika are especially curated to cut the boredom of dull monsoons and fill it up instead with the vibrancy of colors.
While lehariya sarees at Shatika are on pure kota silk fabric, lehariya pattern of tie and dye is done on cotton, silk or chiffon sarees where the six yard is rolled from one end to the other and tied at required intervals before dyeing. The wave pattern seen on these lehariya sarees is the result of the fan like folds made on these sarees before they are actually dyed in the desired colors. The handloom lehariya sarees employ 100% natural dyes. Craftsmen tie the saree and dip it in 5 different colors to get colorful patterns in multiple hues. The final touch is given with indigo for shades of blue, and Alizarin for the hues of red in the final round. These sarees undergo multiple rounds of washes before they are ready for final use.
