These beautiful, soft scarves are crafted from upcycled vintage silk saris. The scarves are stitched using the traditional kantha stitch typical to parts of Eastern India.
Each scarf is unique in pattern and color, and threads, frayed edges, patches are all part of the nature of working with vintage cloth and re-creating a new product from old. Two saris are put back to back and then sewn together with the "kantha" running stitch which creates a completely different color and pattern on one side and then the other.
