Meet the Shakti.ism upcycled sari stamped coin purse. Perfect for carrying your cards, keys, face mask, earphones and any other little bits you don’t want to keep in your pocket.
These lovely little pouches are made using reclaimed sari fabric (mixed fibres) on one side and hand stamped using natural ink on the other side. Each pouch is ethically handmade by empowered artisan makers in Pondicherry, India.
Every pouch is eco-friendly, unique and stylish – with a hint of ethnic design. Breathing new life into pre-loved saris.
Every purchase empowers disadvantaged women by providing dignified employment, a living wage, hope and opportunities for their children.
The saris are from all over India and beyond, which means wide variety of patterns and traditions are represented. Many were generously donated especially for this social initiative. Because every sari is unique, each zip pouch has its own story and is truly one-of-a-kind. Most saris are comprised of multiple colours and patterns intended to compliment each other when draped, which is why no two items made from the same sari are the same. Colours and patterns may vary from the photographs, depending on which part of the saris were used. Some finished items have minor imperfections, which makes them even more charming and distinctive.
