Mahaveer, aged 50 and from Kekri, Rajasthan, is a person with reduced eyesight. He learned the art of weaving by spending time with his parents when he was 10 years old. He had no education and when he came of age, he continued the family legacy as a weaver, preferring carpets with greater detail and effort. Weaving puts a lot of strain on the eyes, and eventually he struggled to see and weave accurately. This killed his spirit and the carpets he received to work on were ones that didn’t have any intricate designs to spark his passion. But, he had a spirit of fighting through his problems by having a clear vision in life. His drive to always participate in the family instead of being a burden kept him going. When he learned of carpet weaving and looms being set up in homes of others, it caught his interest. His eyesight was a big cause for concern since using maps was an extremely high accuracy task, which meant he had to be extra careful with the work given to him. The Manchaha initiative took his fear of mistakes away, and his confidence grew immensely to bring out such beautiful and intricate designs.
Mahaveer’s magnificent journey as an artisan brightened his path as he overcame darkness, ‘Roshni’ which means bright light, is his expression to how Manchaha brought the spark back into his life as his eyesight diminished his will. His creative imagination is his clarity, and in this rug you’ll find sharp shapes, flowers and leaves among zig-zag lines that are a challenge to anyone questioning his vision. “As Manchaha brought Roshni to my life, this light can find a way to brighten up yours too”, he says confidently.
