Maya is a 45 year old weaver from Aaspura, Rajasthan and has been weaving rugs following her family tradition. She is a mother of four, with two daughters and sons that are all pursuing their education, while the eldest is pursuing her Master’s. She is a very curious and inquisitive person, always keeping up to date with the talk of the town or anything new that comes her way. Her husband, a local newspaper distributor says, “Even though I’m the one that distributes the paper, she’s the one that already knows the news!” She loves baked biscuits, and ends up travelling frequently to town to get some, and you’ll even find many patterns in her rugs are inspired by those sweet and salty cookies!
Naya Itihaas
This Manchaha is made by Maya’s younger daughter Kavita, who is making leaps and bounds for the family by doing her Master’s in History. The first half of the carpet was guided by Maya, where she weaved in traditional patterns in shades of blue, green and yellow, and later Kavita leads, putting out historical blends in modern trends. ‘Naya itihas’ means new direction, and this carpet brings out the passing of the torch from mother to daughter while staying true to their roots.
