Sunita, a thirty years-old weaver from Tigariya, Rajasthan, has dedicated her whole life towards her family, but weaving rugs made her realise that self-care is also as important as taking care of others. As weaving was a family trade, she has been familiar with the loom for over 20 years, and can easily predict the nature of each rug in a carpet. The quality of the rugs Sunita makes is exceptional. Being spiritual in nature, she often tries to incorporate the mythological stories she has heard and read. She also peeks into the notebooks of her two sons, Mohit and Manish, for inspiration for her rug designs.
BoondkiSunita’s Manchaha, named ‘Boondki’ which means ‘dots’ is filled with dots of myriad colours. After having designed and woven multiple Manchahas, Sunita now understands that the simplest designs, if implemented with precision, can result in a rug such as ‘Boondki’. Precise in its proportions and balance of patterns, she also took inspiration from the dotted designs in her old sarees.
