Zero waste down to the last detail

The most striking colors and prints from silk textile remnants are selected. These are matched and sewn with colorful cotton thread into narrow, double-layered "tubes". These are filled with feather-light Sheesham wood beads that are sewn into place by hand.

Kantha embroidery

A community of women in West Bengal embroiders the pieces of silk for the closure with a running stitch (Kantha).

Recycle, upcycle

Reusing silk sarees is an ancient tradition in India. The sari, the national dress of Hindustani women, is about 6 meters long. Silk sarees are a precious possession. They stay in the family for a long time and pass from mother to daughter. But at a good time they go out the door anyway. Then the sari is sold to the local pot-and-pan woman, or traded for cooking utensils.
