Upcycled Tussah Silk Sari: Natural and Red

Rs. 8,800.00

This upcycled cotton-silk sari, designed by Joy Bimal Roy. "Believe it or not, I upcycled my own Dhoti- Angavstram set, a Cuttack tussah silk from Orissa! I joined the two, added plain silk borders and a complementary pallav fabric." 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.
