Looking for a fun pop of color for your room? Check these out! Handknitted out of sari, these rugs are fun, durable, and love center stage! It takes a woman about 6 hours just to knit one. The process is quite long because 1st they have to find saris, cut them, and then roll them into a ball. All this happens BEFORE they can even start to knit. Let me just say the finished product is WOW! 

Care instructions: Machine wash on the gentle cycle and hang to dry. Rachel the Director of the White Peacock has washed hers that way every week or the last 7 years!

Dimensions: 4 sizes- 22, 24, 27, and 32 inches. 

Founded in 2008, The White Peacock (TWP) was created to equip and empower a community of local slum-dwelling women. Many of these women had young kids whom they were forced to leave for long hours during the day so they could work in the fields. What TWP quickly realized was that these women could weave, sew, stitch, and crochet. They took this creativity and gave them an outlet. These women are less of employees and more of entrepreneurs. Now the women can work at home and take care of their children while having dignified employment.­

Empowering people. Changing lives.
