Nathi Devi has been weaving for over 10 years and is happily married with two kids. Her husband supports her work and is proud of her independence and her willingness to help earn for the family. Along with weaving, she's an expert tailor and confidently calls herself the fashion designer of her village, as she's made custom clothes for women in her community.
Gulmohar ka pedNathi Devi's first Artisan Originals rug is a testament to her love of nature. Floral patterns adorn the rug from top to bottom and corner to corner. To emphasize her love, the central motif of her rug resembles a garden, filled with bouquets of decadent flowers. She has surrounded the motif with a thin branch with a few leaves, creating a border between the light and dark gray background. Having woven for a long time, she has remembered a lot of designs from her mapped knotting and has taken her favorite ones to use as inspiration for this rug such as the central shakkarpara medallion. Her experience has allowed her to merge her imagination with her skills seamlessly.
