Prabhati is a 40 year old weaver from Manpura Macheri, Rajasthan that claims to have 30 years of weaving experience! Speaking to her a little closely, with a cheeky smile she divulged that she only learned how to weave properly when she was 20, learning from a company that set up nearby. Growing up there were many looms nearby, and she was familiar with the process even though she never actually did it herself. She is a mother of four, 2 daughters and 2 sons all pursuing their education. She had briefly left weaving as the company she worked for retreated from the village and there was no other opportunity, but jumped at the chance when she heard that looms can be set up in her home. When the opportunity for Manchaha came along, she first shied away, then rose to take up the new challenge.
Hawa Mahal
‘Hawa Mahal’ means the palace of winds, and this rug is Prabhati’s representation of the heritage site in Jaipur. This is her first Manchaha, and she wanted to pick out an experience of hers that is really etched in her memory. Prabhati was one of the many weavers that was brought to Jaipur for a day for a training and excursion, and she was struck by awe by the monument. It had so many small windows and she just thought how stubborn one would have to be to make so many! Wanting to try the feeling out for herself, she wove in box after box, pattern after pattern, and soon fell in love with what came to be.
