Asha is a 25-year-old weaver from Fatehpura, Rajasthan. Her friend taught her how to weave and she has been weaving for 10 years now. Apart from weaving, she also enjoys cooking. More often, she makes ‘dal bati’ in her kitchen for her family members. She has two daughters. Her 6-year-old daughter has not attended school since the lockdown happened while recently she also gave birth to a baby girl, Monika, who is now seven months old. Her husband helps her with work and is a teacher in a private school. The couple is also engrossed in seasonal agricultural work to fulfill their requirements.
Pyara
‘Pyara’ which means lovely is how Asha describes her rug. Majority of the colors used are in shades of yellow which she has used as a metaphor to depict her attachment to the color as well as her Manchaha. Towards the bottom of the rug, she started with dark blue fringes and then weaved sand dunes in yellow which surround her house. Later, she moved on to weave diamond shaped structures which she saw in her saree. She aspires to weave more Manchahas in the future as it allows her to weave as her heart says.
