Rukmani & Neeru are a close mother-daughter duo from Kishanpura, Rajasthan. Rukmani, 45, learned the art of weaving when she was just 15 years old from her mother, and taught Neeru the skill herself. Although not able to get an education for herself, Rukmani was able to send her 2 children, daughter and son for a formal education. Neeru is quite intelligent and has done her graduation in Science, while her younger brother is still in college. In pursuit to take her family to new heights, Neeru stays connected to her mother through weaving, while she takes steps for her own career.
Sahyogi
‘Sahyogi’ is the Hindi word for partner, and Neeru uses this word to describe how she worked with her mother, Rukmani, on this Manchaha. It is a neat presentation of symbols being woven in unison and with accuracy, depicting the understanding they have for each other. Out of the many patterns on this rug, you’ll find stars, little boxes, flowers and celebratory decorations. A symbol that stands out on this rug to bring out auspiciousness is the leaves of the Ashoka tree, commonly hung in the entrances of homes to keep the inauspicious out of the home. Neeru shares, “This carpet for me shows how a partnership can really flourish, it brings in nature into a home far from nature, like a partnership, and keeps out what causes harm.
