Rukmani & Neeru are a close mother-daughter duo from Kishanpura, Rajasthan. Rukmani, 45, learned the art of weaving when she was just 15 years old from her mother, and taught Neeru the skill herself. Although not able to get an education for herself, Rukmani was able to send her 2 children, daughter and son for a formal education. Neeru is quite intelligent and has done her graduation in Science, while her younger brother is still in college. In pursuit to take her family to new heights, Neeru stays connected to her mother through weaving, while she takes steps for her own career.
‘Maa-beti’ means mother-daughter in Hindi. The duo chose to fill this Manchaha with symbols and use a strategy that brings the carpet together as one piece. Although the name Rukmani is on the left of the carpet, that was actually woven in by Neeru. You’ll find the carpet smoothly splits down the middle through a slightly different colour base, giving room for a vast range of symbols. The two large symbols in the middle of the carpet is a traditional pot(above) and a local sweet called shakkarpada. There are many others, such as butterflies, flowers, ashoka leaves and other Indian symbolism for auspiciousness, the local map outline, trees etc. This rug is a perfect fit for anyone that loves symbols, and tries to interpret them in a range of ways. There will always be a new interpretation to keep someone guessing.
