Anjana is only 35 years of age but has been weaving for 20 years, the last 8 with Jaipur Rugs. She believes she's lucky because she has a husband and extended family that supports her work fully, yet a lot of people don't believe she's capable of such beautiful rugs without a design map. With 3 kids; 2 daughters and a son, Anjana weaves to provide them with the best possible education and life, something she never had.
Anjana placed a lot of elements from the nature that surrounds her village, in her first Artisan Originals rug. It's for this reason she named it 'Prakartik Sampada', which means natural treasures or resources. She loves the land that encompasses her village and believes it to be filled with unmatched beauty and wanted to knot that beauty throughout her rug. Using earthy tones of browns and tans to create a natural landscape, Anjana ensured that the entirety of the rug captured her love of the environment. The central figure of the rug is a large tree, detailed with branches, leaves, and flowers in shades of blue. And on either side, exists a representation of her cozy home and a guitar-shaped bouquet of flowers that her children insisted on being there. She started out with simple designs but as the rug progressed and she gained confidence she added more complex shapes and patterns, often dreaming about what she wanted to place next. As a firm believer that all life is equal, she really wanted to place some of her favorite animals on the rug, but then after realizing that people may step on them, she decided to focus on just flora.
