Urmila and Meera are two sisters from Samarthapura, Rajasthan. They belong to the land of rugs, Aaspura, a village not too far away. After working in Punjab in a brick kiln, they turned weavers four years back. As sisters, Urmila and Meera never fought with each other. However, after getting married into the same house and as they started weaving, there was a little friction as Meera didn’t teach Urmila how to weave. Once Urmila learned, it became their way to bond with each other.
Dori
When they started weaving the rug, even though they were working on the same Manchaha, they started weaving different designs following a sisterly fight. There was a competitive spirit throughout the weaving process. But, as time was passing and they reached the top of the rug, a line is visible that is woven as the line of coming together, signifying the harmony and love between the sisters, and the thread (English for ‘Dori) that binds them together.
