This upcycled Kanjivaram sari, designed by Joy Bimal Roy, was donated by Vanita Grover Rajpal to the Sari Bank. "The only problem with her sari was that the gold zari on the pallav had tarnished. All I did was to replace the old damaged pallav, and it became a Touch of Joy sari!'' 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 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.
