Recycled Sari Wraparound Skirt
Celebrate the rich culture of India with a uniquely colorful skirt made from recycled saris. Delightfully lightweight, these skirts are handmade in Nepal using salvaged squares of fabric -- giving a second life to glorious textiles worthy of preservation.
The sari has been the traditional wardrobe of the India subcontinent for centuries, and is made of handwoven strips of fabrics as long as 29' (9 m). Saris are typically woven with one plain end to be worn concealed within the wrap, and with decorative borders that run the length of the garment. A one to three foot wide elaboration on this decoration makes up the other end. It is this end, known as the pallu, which is worn thrown over the shoulder in some styles of draping.
- Recycled silk & rayon
- Fit up to 41" diameter (104.2 cm) waist
- Handmade in and fairly traded from Nepal
Due to the handmade and recycled nature of this product, colors and patterns will vary. Please allow us to choose for you.

April 15, 2014 - Nice. Very pretty.
March 26, 2014 - I love that this skirt is lined, pretty and very light. I am 5'6" and the hem of the long skirt goes to just above my ankle. I am looking forward to wearing this with a t-shirt in the summer. Also, I usually buy size ML to L and the skirt wraps around with lots of overlap.
February 15, 2014 - I bought 2 of the long ones, I love them, but find them very poorly made: both have squares of patchwork fraying pretty badly ( one is ripping completely) and I had to do quite a few repairs! I also found them not long enough ( I am only 5'7", wear them on my hips, and they barely reach my ankles)...but they are very cool in hot weather, and easy to wear with a t-shirt, or any neutral top.
January 12, 2014 - I like how this skirt is unique and I love looking at it like a piece of history too. I would buy another just for a different assortment of saris. I went with the longer one and it comes right to my ankles, but I am tall at 5'9
November 23, 2013 - Beautiful, lightweight and individual :o) Very comfy - would like the option for a third, shorter length as well though.
