Pappu, Rakesh & Kamlesh are all from Dausa, Rajasthan and are 45 years old. They are new weavers with the prisoners’ rehabilitation project and have only 8 months of experience. Their first carpet; a Manchaha. They picked up weaving by intently watching the other more experienced weavers in the program and they all prefer pattern designs. They started participating in the program to learn something new, and wanted that new skill to differentiate them from others. Calm and simple minded, they participate in all events but seem to be in their own world.
Dilkush
Their first Manchaha, and their first carpet! The trio had first struggled to find a name for their rug. Not out of indecisiveness, but rather trying to bring the 4 month journey in weaving this carpet together. Pappu took his time and sweetly mentioned the name, ‘Dilkush’. It means a happy heart, and it is a true representation of the vision behind the Manchaha concept. They all like patterns and wove in a range of traditional patterns that connect them to their heritage in different ways. Kamlesh brought in patterns in nature of porous clouds in a blue sky, Rakesh wove in huts that he felt are a common representation of tradition used in images. Although directed toward tradition, they all believe this rug reminds them of their family, and believe that their loved ones are connected to them in the simplest of joys.
