Rekha is 27 years old and is from Takarda, Rajasthan. She is a curious weaver, learning from her family and at a training center 10 years ago. Weaving is the family trade, but she was always interested in giving it a new twist, trying out new things, instead of always following the maps. When she got her first Manchaha, it felt like a dream come true and she just went all in. She is a mother of 2, and constantly motivates them to be curious and learn, because the world is full of amazing things.
SaraswatiSaraswati is the Hindu Goddess of wisdom, and Rekha is constantly drawn to her story. She believes her skill of weaving is a blessing of the Goddess and she has her favour as her children are doing well in school. She dedicates this Manchaha to her using weaving as a form of prayer, and the designs depict the ceremony she conducts. You find ritualistic flowers and leaves portrayed in many colours while at the top of the carpet is considered the abode or space for Saraswati. The energy, aura and purity can be felt just in a glance. “This carpet carries belief and devotion, a precious attribute that many don’t have.”
