Another pattern in tie-dye is Mothra, in which the wave pattern is dyed twice, taking diagonally opposite sides each time. The opposite ends of the length of the cloth are pulled and rolled together. It is preferred and sold still tied to get the original look of the process.
Mothra showcases a check effect with opposite diagonals.


But Leheria, which means “waves” in Hindi, is a tie-dyeing technique from Rajasthan, the fabric is rolled diagonally from one corner to the opposite selvedge, and then tied at the required intervals and dyed. The result is a pattern of lines going across the fabric.
