Savitri Devi

Item Code : RUG1072995

Our designer weaver Savitri Devi, from Aaspura village, is 30 years old managing a joint family. Her children are school-going and are in 6th and 4th grade, respectively, while her husband is a mason. She lives in a family with 3 brothers-in-law, their wives and children. Her sisters-in-law are also weavers, and they all sit together and weave happily. She is also a caretaker of 2 goats, 4 calves and 1 buffalo. When not weaving, Savitri Devi also runs a local store in the village facilitating the sale of daily use items. Savitri Devi is a classic example of an entrepreneur at the grassroots.

This rug has been designed by Savitri Devi keeping the date palm as her design inspiration. She has named her rug ‘Khajoor’ which is a Hindi word for dates. She saw many date palms when she was visiting her relatives in a nearby village. While she was travelling, she was constantly thinking of the design she will weave on her, when she returns home and when she spotted date palms, she found them artistic and beautiful. She also saw different designs of chains at her relative’s house and she picked these design inspirations and first drew a pattern on a paper. She followed her drawing but added Kalash (earthern pot) shaped flowers based on her instincts. She kept the colors subtle since she believes that customers do not prefer very bright colors.

To the owner of this rug
“Just as a date palm rises high up in the sky, may this rug remind you to cross all boundaries and rise high”.
