Santosh is a 21-year-old weaver while her mother Sushila is 41-year-old hailing from Ajabgarh, Rajasthan. They have been weaving for the past four years now. Weaving has been a part of their family for long and therefore, Sushila introduced her daughter to it as well. Sushila’s husband works in the village and observes their weaving on a regular basis. Whenever the mother and daughter duo gets stuck at some point, he often helps them out with his suggestions to proceed further.
Mod‘Mod’ which translates to a fork on the street is how the mother and daughter describe their rug. In their Manchaha, they have woven streets and lanes that run across their village. Treading regularly on these lanes inspired them to use them in their rug as well. They have used black color to show the uneven roads while brown colored yarn is used to show mud puddles across the streets. However, they have tried to connect the uneven roads with flowers across the sides. Santosh and Sushila have been weaving Manchahas for sometime now. This is their third Manchaha and they were extremely excited to weave their imagination into it.
