Large Sari Gift Bags With Drawstring
These eco-friendly alternatives to paper gift bags are handmade using repurposed saris. They can be re-used over and over, and they are brilliant for wrapping small or large gifts, storing your favourite bits and bobs, and they make brilliant wine or other bottle gift bags! Chic and tree-free, our gift bags are reversible, upcycled and fabulous.
This listing is for *one* RANDOMLY CHOSEN reusable sari gift bag, ethically handmade by empowered women artisans in India. If you purchase multiple bags, each one will be different so you have a selection of colours and patterns.
**If you have any preferred colours or styles, please leave a note when you checkout and I will do my best to accommodate your request** 🙂
You will receive a *randomly chosen* sari gift bag with each purchase. Each bag is made from offcuts of an upcycled sari. Because every sari is unique, each pouch has its own story, so no two bags are exactly alike. Colours and patterns will vary, depending on the saris used. Some finished items have minor imperfections or markings, which makes them even more charming and distinctive.
*COLOURS AND PATTERNS WILL VARY AS EACH ITEM IS MADE FROM UPCYCLED SARI FABRIC – PHOTOS SHOWN ARE EXAMPLES*
