A Story of Sustainability Spanning Two Continents.

  • A Story of Sustainability Spanning Two Continents.

    There is no beauty in the finest cloth if it makes 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.
