Weavers Soniya and Mausmi, 35 and 25 year-old respectively, are sisters from the Kanwat village of Rajasthan. They are married into the same family and mother a daughter and two sons together. They learned how to weave from a neighbour and have steadily progressed to now designing their own Manchaha rugs.
Mandap
The dire situation the world is going through because of the Covid-19 pandemic is bound to have an impact on every creative’s mind, and Soniya and Mausmi are no different. Their rug narrates their perception of how weddings have changed post the pandemic, portraying how people have been forced to be physically apart. At one end of the rug, a line of people can be seen carrying a doli (the bride’s palanquin). There is a crowd of people enjoying the celebration, and above it, the mandap or the auspicious fire of the wedding is there. As we go up the rug, the sense of distance is weaved in through motifs of people and animals walking alone and afar with the word ‘Corona’ weaved in prominently.
