Sunita is a 30-year-old weaver from Tigariya, Rajasthan. She says she had entirely dedicated her life to her family, but weaving made her realize that self-care is an important ritual as well. As weaving was a family trade, she has been familiar with the loom for almost 20 years, and she can easily predict the nature of each knot within the carpet. The quality of Sunita’s carpet is exceptional. Being very spiritual in nature, she tries to weave mythological references from the many stories she reads and hears. Sunita also peeks into the notebooks of her two sons to get inspirations for patterns.
Meri Neeli Kali Saree
‘Meri Neeli Kali Saree’ which translates to my blue black saree is how Sunita describes the design of her rug. She bought it last year when she went to her mother’s home. Buying this saree, however, led to an argument with her sister-in-law who accompanied her for shopping. They both had eyes on the same saree but Sunita, being a weaver, has been earning and saving money over the years. This gave her an upper hand to buy the saree of her choice. Unfortunately, it got torn in some time and she had to use it as a ‘pahidan’. Her love for this saree made her weave similar patterns in her Manchaha. She loved how the rug transformed both in terms of colours and patterns. Black patterns emerged from blue and the designs changed from diagonals to blocks to waves in different sections moving from bottom towards the top of the rug.
