Urmila and Meera

Urmila and Meera are two sisters from Samarthapura, Rajasthan. After working in Punjab at a brick kiln, they turned to the art of weaving few years ago. They have three kids each, and their husbands work as daily wage earners. Both Meera and Urmila love eating barfi, a traditional sweet, and watching daily soaps; 'Sath Nibhana Saathiya' is their favorite.

Product Details
They named their Manchaha Bandhan, which translates to 'bond.' Meera is a little shy, while Urmila is cheerful and lively. As sisters, they never really fought. However, after both were married into the same house and as they started weaving together, there was a little friction. Meera didn't teach Urmila how to weave, but once Urmila learned the art, it became their new way to bond with each other. They have included some traditional patterns in the rug such as leheriya, shakarparas, dots, colorful square boxes, and waves in their Manchaha.
