Savitri is 30 years old and a mother of an adorable 10 year old girl and 8 year old boy. Her husband is a daily wage laborer and after she started to weave, her family’s financial conditions have substantially improved. She is uneducated and has harbored a desire to study, which now gets fulfilled due to the Education programs which are run by Jaipur Rugs.
Mehandi
When Savitri visited her weaver friend Bugli at her home, she was dazed to see that Bugli was weaving a self-designed rug. It is then that Savitri decided to weave her own designed rug. Deriving her pattern from the intricate traditional design of a Mehandi(a form of body art using henna) on the hands of a young bride in her neighborhood she created this rug. The diamond shaped motifs on the rug are inspired from Shakarpara (a popular snack in Rajasthan) with some of her favorite colors filled in them.
To the owner of this rug
“Few months back there were foreigners who visited our village along with the Jaipur Rugs team. They shared that they prefer smaller motifs and I have kept that in mind while creating this rug for you. Hope it brings a smile on your face”.
