A Story of Sustainability Spanning Two Continents.
There is no beauty in the finest cloth, if it makes for hunger and unhappiness. Mahatma Ghandi
The Once I Was A Sari Collection is a story that spans two continents. Sari traders travel through India, visiting homes to obtain saris no longer required by the original owner. These saris often arrive in textile markets having passed through several hands, where they are graded and sorted for quality, condition, pattern and desirability. Any with threads of silver or gold are most highly prized.
You can enjoy the enduring pleasure of these garments, knowing their creation has left a smaller footprint on our planet. Each piece comes in a garment bag which has been fashioned from the silk off cuts, to minimise any wastage.
