Finally the summers are here! Despite of being a creature of this hot and humid sea of dessert, Rajasthan, we enjoy our utmost love for food and travelling. There is a saying that you can see all the moods of weather in a day in Jaipur. This changing weather brings out globetrotters and foodie people on the streets. We love window shopping a lot and we do it like almost every evening. Shabby buildings, hand painted windows, large entrances in each market, etc. will make you fall in love with this royal city. Rajasthan is a living history of India where you find the most number of historic places and storytellers whose depiction will make you live in history.
Mohari family is also busy in welcoming summers. A slow sound of traditional song that plays in the background in the workshop makes workers work with joy. Printing includes a lot of involvement of water in work and hence working in summer with water is easier for workers. Also one more reason why printing in summer is more useful is that sun is the source of getting fastness naturally. The more fabric will dry in sun, the more colors will get brightness and fastness. Women who are doing kantha in our workshop can now work on the roof or any other open area. They say working energy is more in early morning and hence almost everyone reaches workshop by 9 am in summer. May the number of these beautiful people and their laughter keep growing in Mohari family! Happy summers! 🙂
