Kantha silk shrug - purple and blue
Featuring a handcrafted, upcycled, silk sari Kantha shrug with cotton threads in purple and and blue with abstract print on reverse from the brand, House of Wandering Silk. This shrug is made with two layers of sari fabric stitched together in the style of Kantha, in which women hand sew rows of tiny running stitch from end to end providing strength and enabling the recycling of saris. The art of Kantha creates a rich rippling effect across the fabric, adding a unique texture to the product.
Each piece is unique and you will not find the same combination of fabrics and threads twice.
The shrug is reversible.
Since this product is purely handmade, any variations or irregularities are part of the design and inherent to the production process. No two handmade items are exactly alike; hence, every handmade item is also one-of-a-kind.
Wear them loose; wear them wrapped around your body and closed with a belt. Wear them over jeans; over a dress; over a sari; over a shirt or sweater. Wear them in balmy weather; wear them in hot weather; draped over your shoulders to protect you from the sun; wear them in cold weather over a sweater and tight around your neck. Wear them inside out. Wear them outside in. You can even wear them upside down to adjust the length at the back. Whichever way you wear them, they look fabulous.
The additional images shown for this product are of a similar shrug, and are purely to show how this shrug can be worn.
