Leheriya is a traditional Rajasthani saree which portrays the water waves through its distinctive design patterns. The leheriya design is imprinted on a cotton cloth generally of the size of a turban or a saree with the help of a special dyeing technique called ‘Mothra’ or the other traditional dyeing technique for that matter. Leheriya sarees or even turbans are mostly found in bright and vibrant eye-catching colours. Since leheriya is an indication of waves it's also named after the word used for waves ‘leher’. Water has always been considered soothing and so is the leheriya which comes straight from the folk culture of Rajasthan.
Leheriya comes straight from the streets of the traditional and culture-driven Rajasthan. As cultural as they are, the leheriyas are quite authentic and light in their own way. The soothing design and their light weight make them perfect for daily wear and casual wear. In fact, 80% housewives in Rajasthan wear leheriya sarees on an everyday basis.
With the modern era of westernizing, we think we often forget how rich and beautiful our culture is and we understand how important and nice it is to modernize yourself but we believe if you keep your culture close to your heart there's nothing in the world compared to that.
If you're an occasionally traditional person, you would definitely wanna buy this thing too because there's no in between. We're either too traditional or completely modern. So buy a leheriya for your wardrobe too and get ready to make an ethnic yet trendy statement.
