Upcycled Chanderi Sari: Blue and Green

Rs. 7,700.00

The upcycled Chanderi sari, designed by Joy Bimal Roy, was created by using the pallu and border from a donated sari' which were added to the contrasting coloured Chanderi sari. ''Something was missing so, I found a very decorative border that was the same shade of green as the saree, but there were only 5.25 metres. I wondered what to do then had a brain wave. Why not add the border on only one side, the lower half? It works very well, I think.'' says Roy.

“My tryst with upcycling saris is paradoxically linked with loss. My sister, Yashodhara, left behind a legacy of coveted saris. She had impeccable taste,” says Roy. After gifting some saris, Roy began to salvage and restore others. "The challenge of integrating disparate elements into a seamless whole excites me. I choose fabric to complement each sari individually. And in that, my eternal quest for beauty and perfection have found their niche.”

A Sari Bank now welcomes contributions. So each sari gives at least three times: once when its donated, then when its upcycled, and finally, when proceeds of sales are donated to benefit a local hospice, Shanti Avedna Sadan, Mumbai.
