Savitri from Aaspura, Rajasthan has been weaving for 20 years now. She is extremely passionate about weaving, and it seems her two children are picking up on that passion too. Before they go to school or come back home, they steal a few knots to practice or complete what their mother has left halfway to look after the home. Her home is always a loving environment where the whole family shares togetherness and the flowing colour comes out on her rugs.
Satrangi sheher‘Satrangi sheher’ translates to the town of rainbows, and it is how Savitri pulls together her multi-coloured erratic design. She wove with her neighbor Sumitra to share with her the beautiful experience of designing a rug. In the array of colours, there are symbols of boxes of chocolate, biscuits and other local traditional sweets. Alongside, there are flower patterns and fountains. The wide array of patterns are contained in a muted border, which refer to the walls surrounding the old cities in Rajasthan.
