Anita is 33-year-old weaver from Aaspura, Rajasthan and she has been weaving for the last 20 years. Because of the marginalized condition at her house, she spent her childhood with at her maternal grandmother, and that’s when she learned the art. Anita has immense love for lengha (a traditional dress), and you’ll find her designs are inspired by the small- large design patterns, prints and colours of the costume she so adores. The colour combination which she sets in her every rug, creates magic. For her, weaving is not a profession, rather it is happiness, which she wants her children to learn as well. She says, “Weaving adds meaning to my life, every day”.
Astha
Anita was really worried about her crop cultivation this year, due to very little rainfall. She felt that her farming will just provide with a small chunk this year. But her hope prevailed. This carpet portrays her frame of mind in this period of worry. The dark blue color splashed over the rug states the amount of crop she was assuming she could have, and the bigger chunk of the grey and white is the happiness she celebrates as her final harvest. Anita did magic with the brown of the soil, the blue of the sky and the brownish white of the wheat, it doesn’t allow your eyes to tweak. She believes it was only possible because she kept “Astha” the belief in herself and in her work.
