Story Behind the Art:
Like most women in weaving communities, Pappu Devi was only allowed to assist her husband as he wove. She got the yarn ready and generally helped around. UMBVS successfully changed the centuries' old tradition that forbade women from working on the loom, thus offering them an opportunity to learn how to weave. Pappu Devi took this opportunity, and now she is an accomplished weaver. Urmul Marusthali Bunkar Vikas Samiti (UMBVS) is an NGO of traditional weavers. What started as a self-help group has now become a successful weavers' community in the Jodhpur district of Rajasthan. Urmul Marusthali Bunkar Vikas Samiti literally means Development Committee of Desert Weavers. They started with a small group of 30 weavers, each equipped with traditional weaving techniques and personal skills, which have been handed-down from generation to generation. Now the organization has spread to 90 villages, supporting more than 170 families. Weavers supported by UMBVS have come a long way, and have integrated modern styles to their classic designs and traditional weaving techniques. They also work with new materials and dyes. The main weaving technique is called Pitt, which is derived from the term Patti, meaning narrow strips. Working on a pit loom, the patterns are woven in two pieces and joined together. The uniqueness of this weaving is the extra weft ornamentation work, called Kashida. Today their product range comprises soft furnishings, garments, and wide range of bags and pouches. I have been weaving now for 15 years, as I was born into a family of weavers, begins Mularam as he offers testimony of his experience. My forefathers have all been weavers, and they taught me the art while growing up. Being a member of UMBVS, I got the opportunity to learn new designs, use different kinds of yarn and ,most importantly, the crucial aspect of quality and perfection. Prior to joining UMBVS, I used to work for middlemen, which was rather unsettling due to untimely payment, poor raw materials etc. Now I get the raw materials and design suggestions from them. Apart from the financial benefits, I have earned a lot of respect and admiration from my community for my fine work and my association with the organization.

    These were really cheap but I was so pleasantly surprised when they arrived! Well made and beautiful stitching. I swapped out my old sofa throw pillows and used their inserts on these. Perfect.
