Pinki is a 28 year old weaver from Sarwar, Rajasthan and learned to weave as an observer when she was quite young, as weaving was her family trade. Today, she feels that map carpets make an easy living because she can work with simplicity and look after her house with full attention and dedication, while Manchahas keep the mind busy thinking of the design. Family is her priority and she says, “Weaving gives me a happy place, and keeps my family close.” She is married and has a son and daughter, and in her home she is everyone’s nurturer and guide.
Mere Shakkarpara
Pinki’s Manchaha is related to her childrens favourite sweet dish, shakkarpara, which she often makes to keep them happy. The quality of this sweet is that it can be crispy and fluffy at the same time. She admits that every time she takes a bite, she remembers her son for his rough, crispy attitude and daughter to be soft and cute, and both add sweetness to her life. She says this Manchaha is a dedication to her children, and if you closely observe the patterns, in some places there are large rough geometrical blocks and there are some smooth knots which flow. The carpet is as colourful her children’s glow. While weaving the carpet, every time she felt this carpet should add sweetness wherever it goes, just like the Shakkarpara.
