Kota Cotton Kerchief - Leheriya Stripes


Tie-Dye Neckerchief

Approximately 20” x 20” give or take an inch.

This sheer kerchief feels lighter than air. An effortless adornment that can be dressed up or down. Leheriya is a traditional tie-dye technique from Rajasthan, India. The term leheriya comes from the Rajasthani word for wave. I bought these fabrics directly from a master artisan whose family has been practicing the tradition for four generations.

The term 'kota' refers to the hand-weave pattern where the woven yarns are spaced and compacted to make a fine check pattern. Zoom in to see what I mean.

These items are in 'as-is' condition and are final sale.  Due to a small miscommunication, the hems were not sewn in the high-end rolled hem technique that would be appropriate for this lightweight fabric.  However, I couldn't bear to let these sit on the shelf as the fabric itself is so magical and tied to such a beautiful tradition.  They are priced to reflect these imperfections.

Check out my photo essay on the blog to learn more about this technique and the artisans behind the process.

A colorplay treasure

I bought this set of incredible lehariya kerchiefs for the craftsmanship and the colorplay combinations possible. The dye technique is nearly a lost art and it is very hard to find skilled examples. Last Chance is offering a trove of lovely colors and patterns. If you have ever attempted multi-color hand dyeing or shibori, you will appreciate the thought, skill and ingenuity of these seemingly simple scarves. Grab yourself a piece of dyeing artistry!
