Pasandidar ShakkarparaNamed after her favourite sweet, Shakkarpara, the seemingly simple inspiration for her Manchaha has resulted in a superbly eye-catching rug that is well-balanced in its design and has a highly sophisticated colour palette. Her astuteness in her craft reflects in the way she has not only ideated but also implemented the designs in the rug.
