Manisha from Sarwaar is only 35 years old but has had 15 years of weaving experience under her belt. She has two kids, a girl of 15 and a boy of 17, both who attend school. Her husband works as a general laborer in a factory. With him off at work, she’s happy to be able to earn money for her family yet work in the comfort of her own home.
Mera Manpasand
Apprehensive and scared from time-to-time, Manisha focused her skills to create her rug, Mera Manpasan. Literally translating to “My own choice”, the rug was a month-long creative endeavor for first time Artisan Originals weaver. The rug’s rust red main color was used generously because she wanted her favorite color to be the focal point. The diamond-like pattern was inspired by the rurally iconic shakkarpara snack. The pops of green came about because Manisha realized that the abstract motifs looked really good with the rouge backdrop. While the rug looks consistent to the outside eye, she’ll be the first to tell you that her rug was an evolution and every next day was filled with new ideas that she tried to implement. She would go on long strolls throughout the village to find inspiration and once found, would quickly return and place her thoughts into the rug. She was keen on ensuring that this rug looked as good at a distance as it did close up, so often times, she would stand far away and ponder which direction the rug should take next.
