Krishna and Mooli are two sisters who live in Ajabgarh, Rajasthan. Krishna is the elder one and is 29-year-old. She has one daughter. While Mooli is 22-year-old and has two children. Currently, they live in their father’s house to look after him. When their children are busy playing or studying, they sit at the loom to weave. Taking inspiration from the surroundings of their village which was once famous for magicians, they have dropped insinuations with their weaving style.
Alag Alag‘Alag Alag’ which translates to ‘different different’ is how Krishna and Mooli describe their rug. Since they started weaving their Manchaha by involving two different imaginations, they named it so. As you move from bottom to the top of the rug, you will notice two different sections on it. The bottom and major section of the rug contains a grey background with flowers, leaves, plants in brown color to show a subtle contrast. While the smaller section on top contains more vibrant colors like yellow and blue to weave hearts, flowers, mesh and diamond shaped structures. This was the first time when the sisters weaved a Manchaha. They allowed their minds to think in different directions and came up with their unique thoughts to make this rug look as a wonderful complete version.
