Asha is a 33 year old weaver who learnt the art of weaving rugs just by looking at the fellow weavers. She was only a child when she naturally developed the talent of making rugs and never took any formal training. She has now been weaving since 15 years now. She is a mother of three children who are all enrolled in school currently.
Dil Khush‘Dil Khush’ means a happy heart, and this is how Asha felt while weaving the rug. She didn’t constrain herself with any specific design pattern and instead followed her heart to make the rug. The abstract patterns and the amalgamation of each pattern into the other are symbolic of the heart’s inner happiness and many desires. As Asha let her heart take charge, she thoroughly enjoyed weaving the rug. It took five weavers and two and a half months to complete it. While describing the rug and the design she says, “Since my heart was very content while weaving this rug, I have named it Dil Khush”.
