Sajana, a weaver for more than 15 years now and mother of 3, started weaving after the birth of her first child when the family had a financial crisis. Even as the family found their way out of the crisis Sajana discovered a love for weaving and didn’t give it up. Five years back, Sanjana was diagnosed with cancer and uses weaving as an escape from the physical and mental trauma of the illness. She loses herself in the work she loves so much, finding bliss with it – one knot at a time.
When she visited Delhi for the first time, she got unsettled with the hustle bustle of the city and high rise buildings. Weaver Designer Sanja ji’s ‘Dilli waala‘ rug is a visual treat depicting the capital city.
The waves on top of the rug are inspired by the way the Delhi Metro runs on its tracks while the diamond pattern has been inspired from the way buildings are closely constructed next to each other. She has ornamented the rugs with flowers and garlands with her own home cozily placed in the center of it.
To the owner of this rug“I have used pure silk to knot my home nestled amidst the woven city”.
