Kamla Devi is a 40-year-old weaver from Divrala, Rajasthan. Just after her marriage, her husband introduced her to weaving. He himself was not that great at it but eventually learnt it from the people in his neighbourhood. Now, it has been 30 years since Kamla has been weaving. She is a mother of five kids: Nisha, Rahul, Seema, Rajesh and Alka. Kamla and her husband work together to sustain a family of seven.
Gulabi Morni
‘Gulabi Morni’ which means pink peacock is how Kamla describes her rug. Her love for pink explains the collection of pink clothes that she owns and even the walls of her house are painted in pink. In the rug, she wanted to weave a big pink coloured peacock wondering that it would look more beautiful than its natural blue colour. Unfortunately, there was not enough pink yarn available therefore, she weaved a small peacock in pink hidden in the bushes of banana trees, shakarparas and leheriya pattern. In addition to that, the rug is in shade of brown with patterns like flowers, mountains, leaves and pixels as one moves from bottom to the top.
Weaving a Manchaha has been a challenge as she was involved in monotonous work earlier where she used to cut and tie strands. However, her dear daughter Alka motivated her to bring out her creativity and eventually she did. This being her fifth Manchaha.
