Filled with positivity, hopes and spirituality, Mamta is 20 years old and resides in Kekri village of Rajasthan. She has been weaving rugs from past one year and takes pride in being an artisan. She is a very beloved member of her family and is very special to both her brothers who respect her for her skills and art. I love weaving, it makes me feel independent. When I was 10 years old, I used to replicate my mother and that is how I got to learn this art so quickly, she says with a smile.
KanhaThe rug is named after the Indian god, Kanha or Krishna. Mamta weaved the rug after imagining the life of Kanha at his birthplace, Vrindavan. I weaved the colorful land of Kanha and decked it up with his favorite things and belongings. For instance, I weaved earthen pots from where Krishna will eat his butter, explains Mamta with immense innocence and joys.
