Mahaveer is a 50-year-old weaver from Kekri, Rajasthan. A fighter, a guardian and a lover of art is what describes him best. He’s been struggling with his vision, even after multiple operations it failed to recover. Weaving through maps became very difficult for him, so the Manchaha initiative was a blessing for him. His designs are very simple and the meanings derived from that are really philosophical. It makes you aware about the depth of Mahaveer’s thoughts. His carpet cottage is called Mani carpets, on the wife’s name, his utmost lover because she has always been there in his toughest times.
Roshan-DhanThis Manchaha is likened to peeping into a long ventilator; it seems to have many openings which let the light fall through. After he lost his eyesight, weaving gave wings to his imagination where he could see and play with all the colors of life and even showcase his art to the world. The narrow and wide openings within the rug make the black and white side bright. Roshan Dhan means the source of sunshine, so let your house have some.
