Sari Throw Blanket
Ten Thousand Villages
Share in the pleasure of new hope. Recycled saris, patched with love, are repurposed into Sacred Sari Throws by women who have left the red light district. Handmade by artisans of Sacred Mark, a workshop of artisan group Prokritee in Bangladesh. The artisans are women who have broken away from the sex trade and now make their living by making soap and handicrafts. The name “Sacred Mark” was inspired by Nobel Prize winning Bengali poet Rabindranath Tagore.
With their cheerful colors, playful patterns, and sustainably style, what’s not to love about the Upcycled Sari Blanket? Old saris are lovingly laundered, then hand-stitched by the women makers of Prokritee, creating bright futures for moms and babies in villages across Bangladesh. Each blanket is delightfully different and makes a precious addition to any home.
