Women in India save fabric from their favorite saris, and stitch them together with colorful thread to create these one-of-a-kind cotton sari throws. Hand-sewn by fair trade artisans in South Asia, the multiple, quilted layers make these kantha throws soft and warm.
Our vibrant sari blankets are also reversible, so when you need a fresh look just flip them over.
Country of Origin:
- Each throw is unique and original, due to the use of reclaimed sari fabric. So once it's gone, it's gone!
Approximately 75" x 36"
About the Artist:
This unique, beautiful, and one-of-a-kind item provides freedom to the poorest of the poor. Our fair trade partners work in conjunction with a non-profit organization in Calcutta named Connexions that trains and employs families out of the slum districts to create these beautiful sari throws. The material used to make this item is cotton saris, which is the beautiful, traditional dress of Indian women. The sari materials were purchased second-hand, at a fair rate from poor areas of Kolkata, India. This item has been hand-sewn, and each one comes with a story of freedom and redemption. By purchasing this recycled sari product, you are providing hope to men and women that live in the slums in India.
