Neeraj & Gaffar from Kakarghata, Uttar Pradesh are close friends with a strong bond and have been with Jaipur Rugs for the last 8 years. They learned to weave from their elder brothers and have now become so confident in their skill that they teach new weavers, Neeraj’s younger brother being one of them. They love to travel, are youthful and vivacious, and embed that very liveliness into every rug.
ChaddarNeeraj & Gaffar once went to a local fair when they were young, with only a little pocket money. The fair had amazing goodies, but one thing that caught Neeraj’s eye was the colourful ‘Chaddar’, which means bed sheet. After multiple efforts of bargaining he failed to crack a deal. Back home he kept wondering about the bed sheet that he couldn’t get. This carpet is inspired by the chaddar and when the carpet was completed his friend Gaffar expresses that the kind of glitter he saw in Neeraj’s eye can’t be described.
