Santosh has been a weaver with Jaipur rugs for 5 years, but has nearly 20 years of total experience. She was married young at 19 and now has three sons, all of whom attend private school due to her hard-earned income. She is proud and dedicated to spending her entire weaving income on bettering the education of her sons so they have opportunities beyond the village.
Guru Kripa

Santosh was hesitant at first to weave an Artisan Originals rug because she assumed no one would like what she comes up with. With a gentle nudge from her quality supervisor, Meera, she started the rug and fell in love with the freedom of designing it herself. She finished the entire rug in a mere 17 days. Having difficulty in starting the rug, she chose to emulate the pattern of one of her favorite saris, but the inspiration evolved as she kept knotting. She realized that keeping the same pattern and colors as her sari would be boring and unoriginal so she then used different motifs commonly found around her village. Janjeera, shakkarpara, and floral designs all made an appearance as the rug progressed, finally creating a runner with dozens of elements in rich shades of maroon, navy, and gray. She named the rug after the blessings of god or “Guru Kripa” because she always prays and remains thankful for any new opportunities.
