Stitching

Artisans in urban northwest India sew upcycled denim, sari fabrics, and cotton to create our beautifully repurposed and stylish accessories. The fabric is sourced from cloth collectors’ remnants and discards, checked for defects, washed and prepped for a new life. Men take the bulk of the machine stitching work; women work on finishing, traditional kantha embroidery, and hand stitching. Many fabrics created and embellished by other artisans that require complex stitching are sent to this community for fine finishing details.

Upcycled Sari

Saris have been present in Indian culture and imagery for thousands of years. Hindu goddesses of beauty, knowledge and power are depicted draped in the colorful garments, and women throughout India wear saris for many occasions. Upcycling saris reincarnates these beautiful fabrics into eco-chic fashion accessories while empowering women artisans to build sustainable livelihoods and communities.

Stitching Artisans

Our stitching artisan partners come from a low-income community. Steady, reliable, fair income, and skills training and development have enhanced their positions economically and socially. Many of the artisans’ children are in school, and the families can now attain higher education.

Upcycled Sari Artisans

United through the guidance of our India team, small groups of women from urban slums in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh work in their homes to learn simple techniques to fashion jewelry and home décor with upcycled saris and other recycled materials. Because of the patriarchal culture, most of the women are confined to their homes with family responsibilities. The training and income provided by this craft empowers them financially and strengthens their confidence and support for their families and community.
