Touch of Joy

Upcycled Kanjivaram Silk Sari: Green and Cream

Rs. 9,350.00

This upcycled green Kanjivaram silk sari, designed by Joy Bimal Roy, was donated by Tejaswini Sontakke to the Sari Bank, from her grandmother's collection.

''Creating this saree was a challenge. I had used the borders and pallu on another sarI. The borders had been broad so the remaining fabric was too narrow. In other words, I needed to add 18 inches to the breadth of the saree to make it 44 inches. So I added green yet another donation and bought a new border. I think the experiment was successful!'' 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.
