As it was her first Manchaha, she wanted to start with simpler designs, but to make but as her confidence grew, she started making more complex and intricate patterns. Since childhood, Rajkumari Devi has been very fascinated with life under water, but being from a dry state Rajasthan, she could only imagine witnessing it from her own eyes. Taking this art as an advantage, she weaved her imagination of flowing water, lotus, fishes and aqua flowers and plants on her rug.
