I’ve literally been waiting months to share this post with you, and am so excited I finally get to reveal a very fun project i’ve been working on lately!
You see, a few years ago I heard about an incredible organization called Sari Bari that works in Calcutta India, employing women who have been exploited in the sex trade or who are vulnerable to trafficking. Sari Bari’s heart is to see women restored and cared for, as they teach women new skills such as sewing.
Friends, I cannot even tell you how absolutely GORGEOUS Sari Bari’s products are….like literally right out of an Anthropologie catalog! Every last piece makes me swoon in delight. Each piece is made from Indian sari’s…vibrant, gorgeous patterns, sewn into a patchwork! I now have my very own Sari Bari quilts and throws adorning my room, and am eying a few more for the future (when we actually have our own house, hehe!)
A few months ago, Sari Bari contacted me about doing a product photo shoot for their new 2015 quilts, bags, coin purses and scarves. I was so excited!! You can see the lookbook they made here.
Today, I wanted to share some of the gorgeous products they have, and give away an incredible Sari Bari quilted throw! This small quilt is perfect for a picnic blanket, light throw when you’re outside, or for cuddling up with on the couch!
