Bugali from Aaspura, Rajasthan is 22 years old and has been enthralled with the art of weaving rugs from past 10 years. She learned the art quite early as she enjoyed spending time with her mother, who taught her the ins and outs of rug weaving. She believes that best of arts get visible when thoughts float straight from the mind rather than being copied from somewhere else and this philosophy is distinctly seen in her unique work. A true believer of innovation, Bugali is a veteran of Manchaha and her rugs make an exclusive collection at Jaipur Rugs.
MukhautaBugli can amaze you with incredible design ideas in her head, this contemporary carpet is the story of the new normal which was even evident in the extreme rural backdrops of India. During the pandemic of Covid-19, the serenity can be felt in the simple yellow shade dominating the design, with small square boxes at distances are the depiction of social distancing. ‘Mukhauta’ means mask, showing how difficult it is to recognize the people around you. The hands in the center of this rug share a clear message, “We can’t shake our hands but we can definitely work together”. The green at the bottom is for hope with the new normal. Even though we are apart, somewhere lies this part of art, weaving colour, joy and happiness together.
