Jaipur Recycled Sari Bag
Celebrate the rich history and culture of India with a uniquely artful bag made from recycled saris. Vibrant and alive with color, these bags are handmade in Jaipur, India 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 feet (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.

October 5, 2012 - Love this bag! It's roomy but not bulky and the pockets on the inside and the front help keep small items in place. I've gotten rave reviews from friends.
