Upcycled Kanjivaram Silk Sari: Multicolour

Rs. 9,900.00

This upcycled Kanjivaram silk sari, designed by Joy Bimal Roy, was donated by Vanita Grover Rajpal to the Sari Bank. ''This sari was difficult to upcycle. I made many attempts, but none of them were satisfactory. Ultimately I covered the original pallu with brocade and treated the old border with Gunga-Jamuna plain borders on either side. It makes a statement!'' 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.
