Upcycled Embroidered Silk Sari: Yellow and Red

Rs. 8,800.00

This upcycled festive silk sari, designed by Joy Bimal Roy, was donated by Kausalya Satyakumar to the Sari Bank. "It was a beautiful sunshine yellow with gold embroidery all over. But it didn't have a distinct pallav. So I decided on minimum intervention. All I did was add a pallav and edging in red and gold. I hope you like it, as much as the donor did!'' 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.
