Recycled Sari Throw by White Peacock from India

$50.00

I love my throw! Why? It is absolutely the perfect weight; not too heavy and not too light. In India, they do not use a cotton filler to stuff the throws. Instead they layer about 3-5 saris in between the top and bottom sari that is showing and khantha stitch them in place. Why is this important? So the saris in between can't shift. The colors to the sari's are so beautiful.They truly are meant to be a statement piece in your room! 

Dimensions: approximately 40 x 75 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.­
