Upcycled Printed Nysa Silk Sari: Grey and Pink

Rs. 14,700.00

This upcycled sari, designed by Joy Bimal Roy, began as a remnant. "I love prints, and of late have been using a lot of them. I felt that adding an intricate zari border to this Nysa silk print would be too fussy. I prefer clean lines. So I added pink tissue to match the flowers in the print and just a narrow braid of zardozi. I am pleased with the result," says Roy.

“My tryst with upcycling saris began when 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.”

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.
