This particular combination of colors have made this bow tie a unique piece of art to flaunt in a party.
This orange and grey colored bow tie made out of a saree is a must for your attire and it is for a greater cause too.
Women in Nepal have a special relationship with their ‘saari’, which can be compared to a ball gown. Most women own several of these and every single one reflects a special memory.
The saari is often only used once, for one event and after they are hung up and displaced in wardrobe, never to be used again.
We think this is a real shame, that something so beautiful and special is no longer able to be enjoyed by other people and is almost forgotten. We want in some way, to preserve these memories and special dresses, by creating something new and useful from them.
With the help of women in marginalized communities, without education and profession, we recycle donated saari’s into beautiful kimonos, bowties, neckties, dresses. These beautiful fabrics and memories will be interwoven and shown in a new life. Our vision is to create work opportunities for these women with an end result of a product they will feel proud of creating.
THAT IS WHY THIS IS MUCH MORE THAN ONLY A PRODUCT
