Antique Sari Wristlet
Perfect by day and exquisite by night, our gorgeously detailed wristlet is a wardrobe mainstay! Handmade by a women's cooperative in New Delhi, India that creates accessories from antique saris which would otherwise be burned to recover their gold or silver content. By putting old saris to use in new handbags, the original craftsmanship is preserved, each bag becomes a new work of art, and the women of the cooperative earn much-needed income to care for their children and households. Expect each bag to vary and be a bit unique -- just like the women who once wore the original saris.
