Touch of Joy

Upcycled Organza Silk Sari: Orange

Rs. 7,700.00

This upcycled orange organza silk sari, designed by Joy Bimal Roy, was donated to the Sari Bank.

''I received an organza silk sari with a zari border. I felt it could be upcycled by adding a border and a new pallav, but it was difficult to find just the right materials. Sometimes upcycling can test one's ingenuity! ' 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.
