I had the chance to discover Mohanan few months ago when my mom called him to repair few beds at home. To my surprise, he turned out to be an expert in wicker work.
I called him to re-weave few old chairs at dd architects studio. While interacting I came to know that he has more than 40 years of experience in the field. To see his hands working on wicker was sheer delight. He told me that he belongs to a traditional community called ‘pakanaar’ who were originally weavers.  A great learning experience, it was – to listen to him and to watch him live ….working.
