These unique vintage throws are originally made from used saris. With amazing fine handwork, a lot of patience and love, the saris are given a second life by stitching the used fabrics together into a splendid patchwork throw. A beautiful way to pass the saris on. The throws are dyed with natural dye made from bark, plants and fruits. Printed by hand with wooden, carved block stamps. Applying a fusion of different techniques that make them even more beautiful and inspiring. Drape them over your bed or add this heart-warming story to your sofa and make your house cosy and comfortable.
