Modern Jackets Tailored From Treasured Silk
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 saree jackets perfectly imperfect & the Kimono is a longer jacket than the Muse, generally covering the hips, 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 around your waist!
Each Indian Inspired Kimono jacket is free size and comes in its own silk bag, fashioned from the silk off cuts, to minimise any wastage. No two are the same, even if cut from the same Sari, so you may find 2 or even 3 that are somewhat similar, but most designs are stand alone one of a kind.
Feel free to contact us if you have any questions about our
Indian style saree jackets.
The garment bag has been fashioned from the silk off cuts, to minimise any wastage. Please enjoy the enduring pleasure of The Muse, knowing its creation has left a smaller footprint on our planet.
