A six-stringed beaded necklace made from upcycled sari silk.
Made from sheesham wood prayer beads covered in remnants of upcycled silk sari fabric and hand-finished with bright cotton thread after each bead.
Using the sari fabric left after the production of Kantha Sari Scarves, as part of a Zero Waste Policy. The scraps are first matched, piece-by-piece, with colorful 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 image. Any variations or irregularities are part of the design and inherent to the production process.
Open ties in the back allow you to wear the necklace at any length.
Total length of beaded area is approximately 35 cm (13”) at the shortest string and 55 cm (21“) at the longest. Length including straps is around 130 cm (51”). The width of the necklace at center-point is 9 cm (3”) and the drop is from 9 cm (3”). Made in India. Care: Spot clean only.
All materials are natural and bio-degradable.
