Recycled Sari Wraparound Skirt
Roll over image to zoom in
Celebrate the rich culture of India with a uniquely colorful skirt made from recycled saris. Delightfully lightweight, these skirts are handmade in Nepal using salvaged squares of fabric -- giving a second life to glorious textiles worthy of preservation.
The sari has been the traditional wardrobe of the India subcontinent for centuries, and is made of handwoven strips of fabrics as long as 29' (9 m). Saris are typically woven with one plain end to be worn concealed within the wrap, and with decorative borders that run the length of the garment. A one to three foot wide elaboration on this decoration makes up the other end. It is this end, known as the pallu, which is worn thrown over the shoulder in some styles of draping.
- Recycled silk & rayon
- Fit up to 41" diameter (104.2 cm) waist
- Handmade in & fairly traded from Nepal

July 1, 2015 - I absolutely love my Sari skirt!!! The size is perfect, as is the length. I wear it all the time and always get complements on it. The best part about it is that I can pray for each woman who initially owned the Sari's. What a great blessing. Thank you for the beautiful clothing Fair Trade!!
June 15, 2015 - I bought the 26 in one for my granddaughter and she loved it. It wrapped around her twice but that assures it will fit for a long time. It does appear a bit fragile but then again it is silk. Funny smell when I opened the package but after airing for a few days the smell was gone.
February 9, 2015 - lovely material. vibrant colors. i am 5'3". length and fit perfect.
February 7, 2015 - I ordered the 26" length to wear on hot, sticky summer days. I am disappointed that the 'liner' is extremely short and made of silk rather than the traditional cotton petticoat. On a hot, humid day, this skirt will just cling to legs. While this is made in the sub-continent, it is definitely not designed by anyone living in a warm, humid climate.
February 3, 2015 - Very cute and great patchwork combos on the skirt I received. I ordered the long one and I'm 5'4" and when tied at the waist it reached my ankles. It's thin enough that I don't mind wearing it higher than I normally would as it isn't bulky under a shirt. Some of the patch threads were loose but it seems to be made decently.
