Hailing from Kuchalwada, Rajasthan, Mamta is a 35 years-old weaver who has been weaving for the past 10 years. She learnt the craft from her sister and is extremely choosy about the rugs she weaves. Mamta has an impeccable understanding of texture and colours and will only commit to a rug when she has what she needs to make the rug according to her vision. She is very talkative and is learning how to drive a tempo from her husband. She is a mother to two children, Akash and Shivani, and loves spending time with her family.
Gol DibbiMamta prefers weaving Manchahas over rugs following a map because she can then choose colours and threads of her choice. For this Manchaha, she has incorporated the more commonplace motifs like that of the shakkarpara and leheriya patterns but also introduced what she likes to her trademark in designing Manchahas- the ‘gol dibbi’, or a circular vessel. Mamta’s pickiness in colours shows in her colour palette which she has chosen after a lot of deliberation.
