MANCHAHA / ORIGINAL RUGS DESIGNED IN RURAL INDIA
Mere Ghar Ka Naksha by Laxmi
About the rug: The rug ‘Mere Ghar Ka Naksha’ or ‘The Map of My House’, talks about the dream home that Laxmi aspires to make someday. She envisioned the entire map and gave it a special place into her rug. She made different rooms for her family members and made a strong root at the centre of the rug so that no external factor can ever erode her bounded family. Full of sensitivity and joys, the rug brings out the emotions of a bonded family in its truest form.
About the weaver: Laxmi hails from Kishanpura village of Rajasthan and has been weaving rugs for the past 20 years. She learned the art of rug weaving from her sister-in-law before marriage and ever since then, she spends most of her time at the loom, weaving beautiful rugs that echoes her innate love for designs. She has family of five members including two daughters, one son and her husband. She is an ardent believer of the fact that the design of the rug depends on the mood of the weaver, how one feels is what one makes.

Where does it go at the end of its life?
In India, handknotted rugs are kept for generations and generally passed down through families. Sometimes rugs are overdyed to provide a new look and feel to an older rug. Rugs are preserved and patches of them can be used for different areas. These rugs disintegrate and decompose and pose no harm to the environment. These rugs start and end from our environment.
Manchaha / Jaipur Living
In rural India, humanity exudes simplicity. Ideas are innocent. Imagination is boundless. Stories are everywhere. An art is born.
Manchaha, a design experiment with non-designers, ignited the power in the dying art of rug weaving. In every design there is a unique story to tell, full of emotions, dreams and the personality of its maker. Manchaha redefines art by tapping into the untamed fashion of rural India.
