|Greensewn repurposes vintage silk saris into gorgeous one of a kind scarves, wraps, and accessories.
GreenSewn is an eco fashion design company that creates unique eco-chic
one of a kind scarves and wraps by recycling old vintage saris. If you don't know
what a sari is, it's a long (usually 15 feet or more) garment worn by
women in India. Our recycled vintage sari scarves are colorful,
intricately patterned, and sometimes have intricate gold "zari" work
hand woven into the borders. We collect the softest and prettiest old
saris and lovingly recycle them into luxurious, authentic, ultra limited
edition and gloriously colorful green fashion creations that are both
sexy and sustainable. Our designs are made from upcycled materials, and each piece is unique,
with it's own special history and charm. Slight imperfections and signs
of wear from a past life are normal and we believe they add to the
beauty and authenticity of the product.
Widespread destruction of our forests worldwide destroys habitats and is
a major cause of global warming. We believe that sustainable
agriculture and re-forestation of degraded lands are essential to the
long term health of our planet. Trees For the Future is a non profit
organization, rated 4 stars by charity navigator, that since 1989 has
promoted the practice of agro-forestry through their tree planting and
education programs worldwide. We are proud to support Trees For the
Future by planting 1 tree with every purchase you make.
