Sari ribbon is a relatively new textile in the handcrafting industry. It is recycled silk sarees that have been torn into strips and sewn into lengths of ribbon or sari “yarn.” The beauty is in the imperfection. The raw edges of the silk are frayed, the lengths sewn together are not necessarily the same texture. There is no uniformity, which adds to the appeal. It is a fun, exotic textile that creates a truly unique finished product.Much like frayed applique, you will find a little more fraying with use, but it will not erode the fabric. Do not pick at the threads, but carefully trim unraveled threads as needed, do leave most of it as this is part of the textile. This is a free-trade product, there is no child labor, but it does provide jobs for women in India and Nepal.
It is strongly recommended that you pre-treat your handbag with a waterproof spray prior to using. Do not launder; very gently spot clean with a soft, damp cloth and air dry.
