The fantastic pair of daughter and mother (in-law), Maya and Rada is truly adorable in the village of Achrol in Rajasthan. Maya is 25 years old and Rada is about to turn 50. On their time at the loom, Maya usually sets the design and Rada fills in the color. “I am the design director of our rug”, says Maya with a smile.
Bachpan Ki YaadThe rug, bachpan ki yaad or the memories of childhood is a take on the beautiful patterns and designs that Maya used to draw during her childhood days. It is interesting to note that the days, she once lived with her mother are now being re-lived and shared along with her mother-in-law. “While weaving this rug, I took myself back to the days when colors meant so much more to us and we drew paintings in almost every corner of our little house, I weaved the same into my rug. The experience was great and I wish to do many more Manchaha in future”, explains Maya.
