Nathi is a 36 year old weaver from Manpura Macheri, Rajasthan that has over 15 years of experience with weaving. She learned how to weave from her brother when she was 20, wanting to work and earn her own living. She’s a mother of two, and even runs a small general shop by the side of the road. She’s mastered the art of time management, using all her time effectively for herself and for the family. Her loom is installed at her shop, so she weaves while no customers are present. The women of the village all aspire to be an entrepreneur just like her.
Banoo
In this rug, Nathi dived into the artful side of Manchaha and chose to interpret objects in her surroundings to create a design. ‘Banoo’ means door, or gate in Nathi’s mother tongue, and she creatively took inspiration from the short iron gate to her home. The gate has an asymmetric rectangular pattern, which she used for the top half of the rug by filling it with man boxes, while in the bottom half she was inspired by a new saree that her husband bought for her. She tried to weave in the patterns on it as if they were flowing and created a mesmerizing zig-zag. The combination of the two is almost as if Nathi is standing at the gate and looking down at her feet. Be ready to explore new horizons walking through Banoo.
