BW Future of Design Awards 2019- Lifestyle category
Weaver-Designer Manju Devi journeyed from Dhanota village to Mumbai to receive the BW Future of Design Award for her Manchaha rug, AAS PAAS. She was awarded the gold award in the lifestyle category.
The rug AAS PAAS, which in hindi means ‘around me’ is a depiction of Manju’s surroundings, like her Chulha (an earthen stove common in rural India), and traditionally hand painted walls. The patterns on the rug are her imaginative interpretation of the rural walls and floors, that are often decorated by creating designs from wet cow dung. The rug vividly takes us through the mysteries of rural India and the rustic beauty that every single by-lane imbues in itself.
Manju Devi’s rug AAS PAAS had been shortlisted for design at the prestigious Dezeen Awards 2019. She has also bagged blue elephant trophy at esteemed Kyoorius Design Award 2019 in sustainable product design category.
