Recycled Silk Sari Ribbon - Tribe Castlemaine

Recycled Silk Sari Ribbon


Recycled sari silk ribbon, dyed by hand in an array of colours, a lovely additon to your crafting stash.

Explore the possibilities for weaving, crochet, jewellery making, textile and sewing projects, gift wrap and home decor.

Recycling silk wedding saris is a cottage industry run by women in villages around Bangalore, India. Each ball has it's own unique rustic character, with a mix of fabric textures in varying widths, raw edges and irregular sewn and knotted joins. 

Locally this silk is small batch dyed-by-hand with non-toxic dyes, the mix of fabrics revealing variegated tones.

Sold individually, balls weigh approx 45-50grams.

We do our best to represent colours accurately, but please allow for variations in monitors and screens.

Silk fair trade sourced from India, dyed in Castlemaine by Elfin Trail
