Secondhand Saris, Firsthand Fair Trade Fashion

Secondhand Saris, Firsthand Fair Trade Fashion

Indian women have worn saris, beautiful, often embellished sheets of fabric, for hundreds of years. The traditional garment can be worn in many ways, but every sari, no matter how lovely, will eventually be draped a final time. Fortunately, the gorgeous fabrics don't have to go to waste when the sari no longer serves its traditional purpose. Artisans in India wash and repair the cottons, rayon, and silks from secondhand saris, then transform them into fashionable, functional handbags.
