Savitri is a 45-year-old weaver from Aaspura, Rajasthan. She has 2 daughters and 2 sons in school. Educating her children and weaving are the two eternal parts of her life. She has grown up seeing her father weave, and you’ll find most of her designs are inspired with traditional art. When she was asked to weave a Manchaha, she tried adding the composition, contrast and the antique designs her father taught her. Savitri is well known for her experiments of joining the contemporary and traditional designs. She cherishes her bond with her father, because it gives her confidence, so she wants her daughters to develop the same and become strong independent women.
KashmirSavitri is a dreamer, her imagination is beautiful and very realistic in nature. Her fascination for Kashmir made her weave her own version of it. Kashmir is bursting with nature and beauty, but it really stands out because of its simplicity. On the top of the carpet, the white shade in a subtle way refers to the snowfall and the dew drops, blue to the clear sky with the slight ray of light as if the creator threw water out of delight, and on the bottom, the boat like structures are the shikaras (house boats) on which she wants to sit and feel the breeze of the Dal lake. The detailing of every element is something that makes you feel, that you are in the real Kashmir.
