Mahaveer has been with Jaipur Rugs from the past 12 years and lives in Kekri, Rajasthan. His wife works as a mason at a construction site. He has 2 kids, one daughter and one son. He has a loom setup outside his house and thus easily works from home and takes care of the kids while his wife goes out to work. He is very happy with the work because he gets to spend more time with his kids.
Rimjim‘Rimjim’ which means the slow patter of drizzling rain seems to be a fitting name for this rug by Mahaveer. It has an earthy blue look to it with even the small flower motifs being in blue, green or brown. The types of flowers on the rug, are what Mahaveer observed on his daughter’s clothes, but he seemed to describe a state of meditation while weaving. He says, “I didn’t need to think much while making this design, I started weaving and there it was.” This rug has a calming effect on those that love the rain, and Mahaveer wants this rug to be in a home where it removes the drought and brings in peace.
