While weaving her designs, Gulab is guided by her emotions and daily life in the village. Gulab has been weaving for more than 15 years in a small village in Rajasthan called Itawa. She dreams of providing education to both her kids, something she was not entitled to as a child. To the owner of this rug, she says, ‘It was challenging to weave this design but I have made it with love for you”.
Meri Machli The rug, Meri Machli or my fish is a creative take on Gulab’s innate capability of imagining and weaving things differently. She weaved a colorful river and placed her fish, right between the waves leaving a space for the viewers to adore. She further went on to weave an over-bridge atop her river to facilitate the visitors. Undoubtedly, creativity drives her to do something different with each of her designs.
