Kamli and her group of friends are hard to go unnoticed in Aaspura, a village in Rajasthan. Full of life, Kamli, Sumitra and Manisha have been weaving rugs from past 10-15 years now and share great friendship. They are all great designers in themselves and also fantastic story tellers. You ask them a story about the rug and they will end up narrating four!
AjgarThe rug Ajgar or Python is a creative take on nature that surrounds the weavers in the village. When we were weaving this rug, a Python came to accompany us at our loom. I wondered how could I miss weaving this incident into my rug? Therefore, I weaved that Ajgar on my rug, explains Kamli with a pretty smile and phenomenal expressions. A few minutes later, Sumitra broke the silence and started explaining, Before marriage, most of my time was spent on the mountains near the clouds. My hut in those mountains is still there so, I took inspiration from those memories and weaved clouds and mountains into this rug.” The rug is a reflection of inspirations from nature and surroundings; it also justifies the fact that what we see is what we imagine and what we weave.
