The beautiful fabric from second-hand saris fills the open markets in Kathmandu. The Red Sari gives this vintage silk cloth new meaning, turning it into felted sari scarves. It’s a stunning combination of design and texture, with colorful merino wool circles felted onto the fabric.
The Red Sari was founded by Julie West after she traveled to Nepal. She empowers local women with fair wage work, using their artisan skills to repurpose saris into one-of-a-kind accessories.
The company reinvests profits into hiring (and thereby helping) more and more women. Whether you give one of these meaningful scarves as a gift or wear it yourself, it’s a lovely way to support a better way of life.
