Upcycled Silk Handwoven Sari: Red

Rs. 11,550.00

This upcycled sari, designed by Joy Bimal Roy, was donated to the Sari Bank. "I received a beautiful Chinese woven silk saree from Ava Verma. It belonged to her mother Silloo Captain. I added a red dupion silk border with embroidery to match the look I had imagined. Alas the saree disintegrated while Abbas my tailor was tailoring the saree. So I bought a red silk woven fabric from a textile fair to complement the border. Looks pretty, doesn't it?"

“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.
