Recycled Sari Wraparound Skirt
Roll over image above 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

I LOVE THIS SKIRT. Not only is it beautiful, and goes with anything :) it has a "modesty panel" which is part of the skirt and means it is truly cool in summer. One has to be a certain age to remember that it used to be standard for women to get these light and fluffy summer dresses. And then have to wear a slip underneath made from ballistic nylon. Might as well put a layer of cling wrap over my body! So now I am determined to never wear a slip. And I'm sticking to it!

Beautiful! I got this on sale for $20 and I feel like it was a great purchase. It's really beautiful, and an ethical purchase which is always an added bonus. The only thing is that I was a little confused by the sizing, and the skirt doesn't look 100% sturdy. Just a little delicate. But it fits well and it was absolutely worth the money.

I love my skirt. I purchased the long 36" and it is top quality. I received many compliments. I am a size large and it fit with no problem. Great to know, when I loose weight I still can wear this. It goes with so many different tops too.
