Today I am writing about our new range of Kantha Scarves perfect to layer up and feel stylish all year round.
I always wondered what would the old saris be used for, well I know now, it has multiple uses like cushion covers, scarves, quilts, coasters, clothing, handbags, jewellery etc. The creative minds surely find the use for the fabrics.
Our Silk Kantha scarves are handmade from 100% upcycled vintage silk saris. They are combination of recycled two layers of separate sari fabric, with fabulous complementary and contrasting colours. These layers are stitched together with bold and popping coloured cotton threads using kantha stitch, making a striped pattern. The scarves have a unique texture due to the rich, rippling effect emerging from the kantha stitch across the fabric.
These scarves are hand made in India by women artisans who have the skills handed down to them from generations.
Each piece is unique, one of a kind. It is wrinkle free, fully reversible and has a luxurious feel and distinct feminine appeal. These scarves are perfect all year round. You can view the collection of Kantha scarves here.
Other than using these as scarves, due to its generous size, these can also be used as table runner or layered up at the end of the bed for a pop of colour. We recommend hand wash with mild detergent.
All our Kantha Silk Scarves are a beautiful result of sustainable upcycled fabric and materials. Hence using these products not only helps people but also encourages the nature lover in you to make contribution to a greener world. We are all about promoting sustainability while keeping up with current trends and styles using traditional skills and techniques.
So the recycling breathes a new life to old.
