I Was A Sari Loop (Infinity) Scarf What a really great idea! Made in Mumbai, this handcrafted scarf is made by using up-cycled sari fabric and helps employ Indian women artisans in slum areas. This is an important mission, as women learn new skills as well as providing them a profession, helping to lift them out of poverty. Your scarf may not look like mine as it is a variation. I love my scarf ~ it measures about 31.5 by 31.5 inches and it has a beautiful chocolate brown background, with a floral border. Golds, greens and greens make up the florals and the material is a good weight too ~ it isn’t flimsily or too thin.
I do wear scarves even in the summertime, because inside the office, the cold AC really is not too comfortable, so a scarf helps make it tolerable. I Was A Sari website is coming soon with an online shop; however, they do show what products they will carry ~ not only do they make scarves from old sari’s, but tote bags of all sizes ~ from shopping to wine and regular totes ~ pouches, yoga mat carriers (oohhhh), different types of scarves, including sarongs, bandana and jewelry as well ~ the beads are made from the saris! I am looking forward to seeing their store open, as there are a few pieces I would love to purchase. RV $25.00
