Lalita from Para, Rajasthan learned the art of weaving from her elder brother to make ends meet as the family trade was weaving. She didn’t have the opportunity to get an education but is still very content with how her life turned out. She has a loving husband that works as a marble sculptor and has 3 daughters and a son who all attend school. Always playful but shy, she says, “Since I didn’t go to school, I didn’t have to grow up! I have fun, and my family seems to love that about me too.”
Umeed
Umeed, which means hope is a visual expression of perseverance that Lalita brought out into her Manchaha. The constant change from situation to situation and hurdle to hurdle in life is represented in the constant change of patterns through the rug. Shifting from one end to the other, the patterns keep changing, and Lalita’s perseverance in bringing colour to each shines through. “Everything we do has to be beautiful at the end, no matter what hurdles come. That’s what is in my rug.”
