ft.
Dwelling in Manpura, Laxmi has been weaving for 8 years now. Her children, aged 18, 16 and 11 are enrolled in school and her husband is a mason. When she was asked to design her rug for the first time, Laxmi was so excited and scared at the same time that she spent sleepless nights thinking about the design she was going to make the next day. With her second rug, Laxmi has gained more confidence which is evident through the intricate designs which she has carved on her canvas of warps. Unlike many other weavers, Laxmi likes to use light colours in her rugs such as yellow and blue. When she is not weaving, Laxmi takes care of the house and her children.
Mor Pankh

Designer weaver, Laxmi has taken inspiration from peacocks that usually dance and unfurl their feathers every morning, running on the mud trails and sitting on the tree-tops in the village. In India, it is common that people keep peacock’s feathers (Mor Pankh in Hindi) in their homes for good luck and prosperity. She was surprised when she was made aware, during a training session by Jaipur Rugs, that this is the national bird of India. This brought a sense of pride and emotion in her for the motherland and she thought that her rug has a higher purpose. She has also woven star like leaves for tranquility, hearts for love and jewelry like patterns seen on the cups in her house.

To the owner of the rug
“This rug is a symbol of beauty and knowledge. May it help you attain divine wisdom.”
