Phoolo Ka GalichaInspirations are ubiquitous; you can find them anywhere and everywhere. Our weaver, Rajjo found her inspirations from various motifs and patterns that surround her at her home in the village. “There were instances when I was confused and lost in figuring out what to weave but then I took a glance at the bed sheet and decided to weave similar patterns on my rug, of course I didn’t copy it as it was but yes, I found my inspiration right there”, she narrates after thinking for a while. She went on to explaining that she weaved flowers, petals and everything beautiful into her rug and when she saw the finished rug her happiness was just beyond control.
