Pinki aged 26, from Kekri, Rajasthan has been weaving rugs for more than 12 years now. She has two children she loves dearly that attend school, and weaves to provide the best she can for them. She learned how to weave while she was quite young, while she spent time with her neighbours who were weavers. She soon started enjoying the art and is happy spending her days on the loom while her children are away at school.
Harshita‘Harshita’ is an ode to Pinki’s daughter, and it means full of happiness. She shares that most of the design on her rug is a play on wave patterns, which her daughter loves to draw in the mud. She mixed these wave patterns with other reminders of the scenery around her using leaves, fields and a flowing river that goes across the rug. This being her first AO, she knew she had to start fearlessly as many others had already caught their groove in weaving amazing patterns. You can clearly see her message in the design, “As my daughter’s full of happiness, the happiness I feel comes through on this rug, and brings it into the home.”
