Deepak is a rug designed by Kasturi Balotia, made from thousands of individual knots using hand-spun leftover yarn.

Manchaha, a Hindi word popular in Rajasthan's weaving community, means "expression of my heart." The rug is part of Manchaha, a sustainable initiative where weavers get to design their own rug spontaneously on the loom.

The first rug Kasturi designed was inspired by the turn of the season on the fields of wheat in her village. She brought that together with the Diwali celebrations that bring light to every home.

This project has been longlisted in the homeware design project category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
