A mother of 5 daughters, Savitri is a 33 year old artisan from Aaspura, Rajasthan. To learn to weave was like a game for her, tying knots with her sisters while they spent time together. Today after 12 years of weaving, she says each knot has empowered her to do better. Her neighbours seek her help in farming because her dedication in her work makes all the difference. Shades of green and white are very prominent in her rugs. She gives credit to cooking for her intense understanding for colors. She says, “I have seen the shade evolving, when the heat touches it.”
Chauraha
This Manchaha is a blend of the ideas of 4 weavers; Savitri, 2 of her daughters and her neighbour. The two similar paths running parallel to each other bring out the harmony of the daughters, felt in the rhythm of the design. The large diamond in blue & grey is how Savitri made her mark on the rug, playfully showing that the Manchaha was hers to being with. The unique bouquet-like motifs were the experiment suggested by the neighbour, almost presenting the rug like a gift. ‘Chauraha’ means crossroad, and this rug is the meeting point of four different roads in different thoughts.
