This necklace is made for and worn by the Queen of Style, Iris Apfel. This chunky necklace is made from very light wooden beads and covered with recycled silk sari scraps in vibrant colors. A chain that is guaranteed to generate conversations! Thanks to the open straps at the back, you can wear the necklace at any length.
This necklace is an epitome of zero-waste fashion. The most striking colors and prints from textile scraps from recycled saris are selected. Then they are first matched piece by piece with colorful cotton thread and then sewn into narrow, double-layered "tubes". These are filled with feather-light beads. of Sheesham wood. Then each bead is sewn into place by hand.
Reusing silk sarees is a very old tradition in India. The sari, the national dress of Hindu women in India, is about 6 meters long. Silk saris are a precious possession. They remain in the family for a long time and pass from mother to daughter. But at a good time they go out the door anyway. Then the sari is sold to the local pot-and-pans woman, or exchanged for cooking utensils.
