Soniya is 27 years of age and she lives in the serene village, Aaspura. Her husband is a daily worker and they have 4 children. She has been weaving since the past 10 years and believes that her association with Jaipur Rugs, since the past 6 years, has changed her life in many ways because she can now read, write and can support her husband with her income.
To design this rug, Soniya Devi took inspiration from her daily visits to the temple (Mandir) every morning to design this rug. She believes that one should start their day with the blessings of God as it gives positive energy which is required to work with passion. She re-creates little temples towards the bottom of the rug to convey her message to the world. She has also woven other elements used to offer prayers such as an earthen pot called Kalash, earthen lamps called Diyas and Shakkarparas, a popular snack which is offered to God in her village.
To the owner of the rug This rug will bless you, now and forever.
