Re-using worn saris, giving them a second life. Everyone knows saris, the traditional clothing of Indian women. These garments fuse colourful and lively patterns with natural grace. They have been taken great care of since a sari is both an aesthetic and social piece of clothing. With fine handwork, a lot of patience and love, the saris are given a new life by stitching the used fabrics together into a splendid patchwork of vintage designs. The worn state makes them even more beautiful and inspiring. A special way to pass these saris on.
