Maya is a 25-years-old weaver and started weaving just about 2 years back. However, she takes pride in saying, “When I weave Manchahas, I get to be the design director of my rug.” Her husband works in doing ‘kaddhai’, which is to add shimmery elements in the borders and designs of sarees. She takes inspiration from the designs he makes and also shares her thoughts with her on new designs. They work as a team, working to create beautiful designs in each other’s segment. She recently became a mother of an 11-month-old daughter, Rakshita whom she loves dearly.
Rakshita
‘Rakshita’, named after Maya’s newly born baby girl, is her third Manchaha. She wove this along with her friend, Koyali, as they’ve been working at the same loom for a long time now. Koyali loves Rakshita just as much as Maya does, and they both share so much love for her even while they weave. In the rug, they have both woven the toys that Rakshita plays with every day, including ‘jhunjuna’ and ‘jhaalar’. She has even captured the scenic beauty from her surroundings by weaving mountains, which are present behind her house. As this rug came together, it depicted a perfect place for Rakshita to play and grow up, with its mild base and bright motifs.
