Framed Traditions - Sari Art

This is a beautiful idea by American company Framed Traditions, which takes vintage clothes and recycling to a different leve. Taking parts of old saris which are transformed into works of art, each sari is carefully pleated and bound into frames which can be displayed on walls. What I also liked about the company is that they are willing to donate 10% of each sale towards funding children’s education in India. This is a great way to re-use traditional clothes which are too old or damaged to be worn again, especially, if they have been handed down by older generations and have a personal meanings attached.

    I have some stunning salwar kameez's/lengha's from around the time of my wedding that I am saving for Little Lady's trousseau, but this is a nice alternative.
