Sajana, a weaver for more than 15 years now and mother of 3, started weaving after the birth of her first child when the family had a financial crisis. Even as the family found their way out of the crisis Sajana discovered a love for weaving and didn’t give it up. Five years back Sajana was diagnosed with cancer and uses weaving as an escape from the physical and mental trauma of the illness. She loses herself in the work she loves so much, finding bliss with it – one knot at a time.
Our weaver designer Sajna Devi, drew inspiration from Rangoli to weave this beautiful rug. Rangoli is an art form in which beautiful patterns with vibrant colors are created on floor using paint and colored powder. Sajna Devi wanted this rug to look like a rangoli for it’s owner’s beautiful home. She has weaved the rug using colors she loves and motifs that she usually draws on her floor. She has also knotted some flowers that she had seen in a local newspaper. From geometric lines, flowers, to irregular motifs, she incorporated everything she likes in this rug.
