ft.
A weaver from 5 years, Neetu resides in Manpura with her 3 school-going children, her husband, who is employed in police force and 3 goats. She completed her first self-designed rug in a time span of 2 and half months. When she was asked to make a rug with her own design, Neetu was confused and scared at first. She was motivated during the workshops by the Jaipur Rugs’ design team after which she got inspired to try 2 inches of weaving. Later she never looked back. Unlike a lot of other weavers, Neetu prefers light colour shades such as grey and yellow.
Mera Laado

With an instinct to create intricate and busy designs, our designer-weaver, Neetu, creates a garden of flowers in her rug. Not just the flowers, Neetu also brings the butterflies, houseflies and crows in her rug as she sees these hovering over the flowers in her surroundings. She names her rug ‘Mera Laado’ as she has nourished this rug with as much care as she does for her children. In her design, one also finds patterns of leheriya inspired from the designs in her sarees. On the top of the rug, Neetu has woven black crosses taking inspiration from the Tic-Tac-Toe game that her children play often.

To the owner of the rug
“Every single knot in this rug is like each food morsel for my children. This carpet has my heart filled with extreme love.”
