The used sari from which this scarf was made has been used in other scarves, too! It speaks to the versatility of recycling material that may be stained, torn, and otherwise not usable as clothing.
This simple design and complementary colors make for a scarf that will blend wonderfully in a casual wardrobe, looking fantastic with jeans and a tee-shirt, or a pencil skirt and a smart sweater. It can also be used with a jacket to keep the chill off.
The fiber content is 100% sari silk, and merino top roving. This scarf will be for sale at the Recycle Santa Fe Arts Festival December 6th and 7th, in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
I love the geometric patterns that are frequently found in textiles throughout the world. This bag was inspired by this geometry, and is accented by using recycled sari silk from India. Using a modified shibori technique, I’ve embedded white merino ovals amongst folded and layered Indian silk, which itself features a subtle geometric pattern. On this, layers of exotic fibers including top merino, Tibetan yak, bamboo, and more silk give the blue and purple colors of the silk an iridescent blue, green, and purple hue.
