Menika (30), Anita (20) and Laxmi (20) are three weavers hailing from Bhainslana, Rajasthan. Anita has studied till 7th standard while Laxmi has completed her 12th but they both share a close friendship. Menika, on the other hand, is married and has studied till 7th standard. They work on the loom together to generate income for their homes by working majorly on high priority orders. These three weavers work in sync with each other and share a good understanding to combine their skill and speed in order to achieve better results. Menika leads the weaving process as she is mature enough while the other two are keen students working on their skill. They were all excited to work on their first Manchaha as it gave them a scope of making mistakes and yet coming up with a beautiful design.
Titli ki pyaali‘Titli ki pyaali’ which translates to a bowl for butterflies is how the three weavers describe their Manchaha. They have woven these little bowls for the butterflies, at the bottom of the rug, to come and drink water. Laxmi and Anita being young are full of enthusiasm and have woven hearts and balls to show their energy. While Menika being a more mature weaver has woven butterflies to express her freedom to be young once again. The rug pattern is harmonious from the very beginning. Menika, being more experienced, led the other two initially in terms of designs and asked them to weave hearts and butterflies. Soon as the chemistry between the three developed, they started giving in their inputs as well. Laxmi enjoys watching her kids play various creative games with the ball. However, they do not let her play along so she has woven it into the rug. While Anita suggested weaving glasses and small cups in it. The three weavers have put in their heart and soul to weave the different patterns like flowers, squares, glasses, waves. They have used the shades of blue, sea green and white making it an apt color combination for their rug.
