Babu Lal is a 55 year old weaver from Narhet, Rajasthan and weaves with his wife Kalli Devi. He learned how to weave as a boy in school as it was the family trade and he used to try his hands at it with his parents. After marriage he taught his wife to weave too, so they could spend more time together and be a team. It helped them bond together and raise their 3 sons with all the values they both believed in since they were in sync. Their children now run their own homes and they are so glad that weaving brought their whole lives together.
Ghungat
‘Ghungat’ in Hindi means veil, but the pattern depicted on this rug presents the traditional Rajasthani design called leheriya. It means waves, and it is associated with bright changing colours. The Manchaha experienced couple decided to go simple with this rug, and simple turned out impeccably beautiful. The reason they named it veil, is because Kalli looked at it after it was done and the tone change in the middle of the carpet stood out to her. It reminded her of looking through a traditional veil, the blue tone for the clear sky and the red for the arid earth around her.
