Modern Garments Tailored From Treasured Silk

Your choice of a Girl from Ipanema robe makes you part of a new chapter in the life of a vintage silk sari.
REDUCED FROM $295.

 

    Our talented 'Once I Was A Sari' tailors in India carefully select each sari for its beauty and quality, to refashion into a modern garment, designed to showcase the splendor of the precious fabric.

    The beauty of each item lies in its imperfection, with any minor inclusions being your assurance of an unrepeatable handmade item. We call these Indian style sari jackets perfectly imperfect. The Girl From Ipanema Robe is our longest silk style, falling somewhere between mid calf and ankle, depending on your height. It also comes with a silk sash to tie around your waist or tie at the back, forming a half belt. This will give the jacket more shape & less volume. Anther stunning variation is to wrap a Japanese style Obi, or upcycled sari silk Obi around your waist!

    Each Indian inspired garment is free size and comes in its own silk bag, fashioned from remnant silk, to minimise any wastage. No two are the same, so you can be reassured you are choosing a truly unique piece.

    Please note, in store we sell some "seconds" where the imperfections of the vintage fabric are deemed to be a flaw rather than a feature, which is reflected in the pricing of the garment and noted on the swing tag. These garments are still beautiful. They are not available through our online store, as we feel a thorough inspection, with our assistance, is required. 

    Feel free to contact us if you have any questions about our upcycled sari silk clothing.

    Please enjoy the enduring pleasure of these unique and delightful pieces, happy in the knowledge that their creation has left a smaller footprint on our planet.
