House of Wandering 8 String Sari Bead Necklace
Here is what the makers of these beautiful pieces have to say about them;
"Our range of signature Sari Necklaces are designed to utilise the sari fabric left after the production of our Kantha Sari Scarves, as part of our Zero Waste Policy.
We select the most striking colours and prints from the mountains of sari remnants in our workshop. These scraps are first matched, piece-by-piece, with colourful cotton thread, and then sewn into narrow, double-layered tubes. The artisans fill these tubes with wooden prayer beads, hand-stitching each bead into place with the thread.
One piece of sari scrap can be made into several necklaces, so positioning of print may differ very slightly from the first image. Any variations or irregularities are part of the design and inherent to the production process.
- Eco: use of scrap fabric reduces waste. All materials are natural and thus biodegradable.
- Ethical: handwork provided by migrant workers in Delhi from marginalised communities. They are provided at least double the minimum & market wages, regular work, safe and flexible working conditions and training."
