Item Code : RUG1072352

The sister weaver duo, Hansa Devi and Urmila Devi, have been married in the same family, in a small village called Kanwat. They work on the same loom and spend their days together. Hansa’s husband is a mason while Urmila’s husband is a car driver. They have been weaving for more than 10 years and still take a lot of interest in weaving. They are happy to have been able to construct a new house from the income they earned from weaving, along with being able to send their children to school. They stay in a joint family and when not weaving, they take care of their in-laws, their husbands, their children and their goats.

This rug is named by its weavers, dibbiyan, which means boxes. Designer weavers Hansa Devi and Urmila Devi are friends and when they started to discuss design ideas for their rug, they realized that both of them loved diamond shaped boxes. Both ends of the rug are adorned by boxes designed by the weaver friends, separately, since one of them began the rug, then they wove the center part together and the other one ended the rug. The box pattern takes on a watermarked look at the centre of the rug and this is an intentional effect created by the weavers. The colors are kept in shades of blue which both weaver friends like.

To the owner of this rug
“We came together and encouraged each other to weave better. We hope that you also remain connected with people who are important for you and keep drawing inspiration from them”
