Sampati, Santosh and Kanta are three best friends in their mid-thirties from Manpura Macheri, Rajasthan. They can sometimes spend days at each other’s loom instead of working on their own. Just like sisters, they look after their children and even manage meals together. Although from different families they are known as the triplets by the other villagers, and wear that badge with pride. You’ll find their designs are always like a party, refreshing and lively. Sampati worked with Ashraf, a 47 year old designer who has been into designing for decades now. The rug took around one and a half months to transform into a combination of different patterns along various sections of the rug.
Tigri
This Manchaha rug is not a piece of its own, rather it is a collection of three. ‘Tigri’ means triplets in the local Rajasthani language, and it is what Sampati, Santosh & Kanta decided their collection should be called. Each rug in this collection is a colourful and playful presentation of their personalities, and all equally difficult to tell apart. They start similarly, with small line-like patterns and then evolve into a celebration. Similar but unique, these rugs will connect hearts wherever they are, just as these three are connected. In order to make this particular piece, Ashraf guided her to weave ‘barfi’, which is an Indian sweet, into the rug. Sampati brought in her imagination and weaved the sweet in different shades of pink, blue and green towards the center.
