'manja craft' in Baddowal

The lovely Basheera aunty has made hundreds of manjas in her time, and there's no stopping her. She has six new ones carefully covered and stacked in her home in Baddowal, ready for the summer months.  These are reserved for special occasions when she will have guests visiting. After putting up some resistance, she let me have a sneak peak at these stunning beds. She also makes foot stools and rugs.

I will be working with her to develop some samples for table runners and placemats on my next visit home.
