Sunita 31, and Kamla 25, from Aaspura, Rajasthan are close friends that enjoy spending time together. Sunita learned to weave at 15 while spending time with her elder sister. She is a mother of 3 sons in school and is passionate about weaving since she can provide for her family in the comfort of her own home. Kamla learned the art of weaving from her sister-in-law 6 years ago. It helped her connect with her new family and participate in their home, so weaving is close to her heart as it gave her a way to bond with them.
Taara Sitaara‘Taara Sitaara’ means Stars and Planets, and it is a creative depiction of the imagery in this Manchaha. Using the wide array of colours available to them, Sunita and Kamla used abstract symbolism to create a landscape. You find earth at the bottom of the rug, in the form of a mild valley, rocks and plants, then comes the evening sky, as vivid as can be imagined. There are planets, woven as large boxes, and many different patterns to depict stars and obscurities to the heavens. Kamla believes this rug will be best suited for dreamers, to help them bring those dreams to reality.
