Very vibrant and charming, Mamta is a weaver turned designer from a small village of Amarsar in Rajasthan. She is 30 years old and has been weaving rugs from past 15 years, she is fond of rug weaving and is often accompanied by her husband who suggests her what can she weave next “Whenever I am stuck, I seek my husband’s help, he helps me to get out of the circle”, she explains with a shy smile.
SamriddhiThe rug Samriddhi or prosperity is a take on Indian festivals and good-luck that they bring along with them. India is a country of festivals and Mamta made it evidently visible in this rug. At first, she started the rug by weaving a big diamond at the top but soon it was the time for Diwali, so she weaved lamps and diyas. She also decked up the rug with two rats and one laddu which is a symbol of Lord Ganesh and signifies good fortune. Then came the time for January 26, the republic day of India so she weaved a school scene wherein the students are in attention position and are singing national anthem near the Indian flag. Indeed, there were multiple thoughts revolving in and around the minds of Mamta that led to the formation of this beautiful and dynamic rug, Samriddhi.
