GuldastaSwapna’s Manchaha encapsulates what we intended this campaign to be- highly personal to the artisan. For her ‘Guldasta’, which translates to ‘bouquet of flowers’, she wove in myriad varieties of flowers as observed in her surroundings. She dedicated the rug and the flowers so adeptly woven into it to her daughter Kamlesh. The design balances itself out with its geometric patterns the masterful balance of heft and distribution of colours from her charming palette.
