Kanni is 35 years old and started weaving since the time when she was just 10 years old. Rug weaving gives her a chance to get transported to her own world of happiness. Be it an artisan original or a design map, she weaves them all with same love and passion. Though she can’t read or write but she showed utmost courage in replicating what her son wrote in English, ‘WELCOME’.
