Dropati is a 26-year-old weaver from Manpura, Rajasthan. She has been weaving for the past 10 years now. She describes her life in a full swing of ups and downs as she left her husband’s house due to his extensive drinking problem. Now, she lives with her mother and has decided to choose a path to be independent and support her family. However, when you engage in conversations with her, you will never be able to make out any of her sorrows as she smiles quite often and is proactive. In her village, people call her ‘the mountain woman’ as she loves climbing mountains. Moreover, she is always updated about everything that happens in her village as she loves engaging in conversations with anyone whom she meets.
Satrangi
‘Satrangi’ which translates to seven colours is how Dropati describes her rug. She has used these colours in small titbits. Initially, she got only five colours but it was her earnest desire to use seven. Since rainbows are rare to be seen in the skies of Rajasthan, she was mesmerized when she got to see it for the first time. Therefore, she wanted to play around with the colours of it in her third Manchaha. The main colour in the rug is blue to match that of the sky. Later, she went on to weave small boxes in different colours. Dropati wanted to weave rays in different colours to match the arcs of a rainbow. However, she did not want to weave an incomplete rainbow as she was not sure of the availability of the yarn in each colour. Therefore, she weaved small pixels in various colours scattered all over the rug.
