The woman with an innocent smile tying knots to all her thoughts is Santosh, a 25-year-old artisan from Aspura, Rajasthan. Her relationship with art and her son Kiyan shows her compassionate and giving nature. Santosh spent her entire childhood with her grandparents as her parents migrated for their income and livelihood. The traditional and cultural stories are well weaved in each of her rugs. Even though she grew up in a village, she seems to have a city girl within her as she loves pasta and is still fearful of animals. Blushing, she shares, “I love my husband the most. He teaches me everything I don’t know. I never want him to go.”
Meri Bindiya
This Manchaha has a lot of heart, as Santosh was experiencing mother-hood for the first time. Meri Bindiya refers to Bindi, the circular colourful accessory that is very often found adorning womens’ foreheads. The rug starts with patterns from Santosh’s saree but twists to colourful boxes of Bindi because of son’s continuous attempt at grabbing it while she was weaving. When you move upwards the check pattern in blue and white refers to the torn old favourite shirt of her husband who tried many times to convince her to get it stitched back. The rug depicts the in-house chemistry which is such a mystery, Meri Bindiya.
