Silk Saris for upcycling fabric for Recycled Sari Yarn or Ribbon
10 kilos or 22 pounds of recycled silk saris from India perfect for sari yarn or sari ribbon use. These saris are sourced for you per request. The saris are 100 percent silk and all have been worn and used they each have a history behind them. Many Customers buy them to make infinty scarves and clothes and home decor.
I started selling these in 2011 in the beginning I was buying 20 kilos at a time, I had no idea what a success they would become, nowadays in 2014 I buy 150+ kilos each month, At first it was hard to explain to the sari vendor what I needed, but we have a routine now! I inspect each sari for wear and tear although I do not open each and every one, that is just not possible as he brings me 200+ kilos at a time. Many customers comment on the beauty of the colors, that I selected for them.
I do test for silk if I am suspicious, but one piece may get by me only cause its too pretty not to buy! If you need only silk ie. nuno felting let me know I will make sure that is what you get.
I have sold to numerous weddings and theme parties as they use them to decorate the events.
Most lots come with approx 40 sarees, give or take a few. And at 5 meters per sari thats over 200 yards of fabric to play with.
You will find stains and holes sometimes not too noticeable, but since the sari generally come 5 meters long there is plenty of fabric to play with. They come in all colors and prints.

Very good, fast communication. Answered all of our questions quickly, super helpful! The product arrived quickly, well-packed, and the description was accurate and she did a wonderful job of finding colors we requested. Will definitely order from this seller again!
Seller communication is great, shipping for this item was pretty fast and the description was accurate. Great product, thank you very much!
These saris are so beautiful! I did not make any specifications or requests, and I received a wonderful range of colors, prints, lengths, and textures. As described by the seller, some have wear and damage, but every single sari has a generous length of usable fabric. Some are 100% intact and nearly perfect.
