Reversible sari fabric gift wrap | ethically handmade in India | reusable and fairtrade Begin your zero-waste journey with one of Shakti.ism's large sari gift wrapping cloths, each one lovingly made by an empowered artisan in India. Each cloth label is signed by its talented maker (in Tamil script)!

These eco-friendly alternatives to paper gift wrap are handmade using repurposed saris. Re-use your cloth over and over again! They're brilliant for wrapping just about everything, including odd-shaped gifts (balls, wine bottles, anything!). They're good for the environment, made entirely of 100% recycled reclaimed sari fabric, and you can save trees by not using paper gift wrap. They're also gorgeous and any gift recipient would love to receive one. These unique fabric cloths are so lovely that you'll want to keep one for yourself!

You'll receive 1 unique sari cloth with this purchase. Each cloth is made from 2 different saris (one on each side), so you have 2 different gift wrap designs to choose from. The cloths are made from upcycled sari fabric, so colours and patterns will vary. You may or may not get one of the sari cloths shown in the images. Some finished items have minor imperfections or markings, which makes them even more charming and distinctive.

Sari gift wrap cloths are gifts that keep on giving; they can be reused again and again as gift wrap. Large cloths can be used as neck scarves.

Dimensions. Large gift wrap cloths are 60cm x 60cm each (approx 24" x 24")

Care. Gently hand wash in cold water. Hang or lay flat to air dry.

Meet the artisans. The Pondicherry Shakti.ism tailoring team members are from the semi-nomadic Narikuravar "gypsy" tribal community in Southern India. This indigenous group has faced discrimination since ancient times, primarily because of their nomadic lifestyle and consumption of animals. The gypsy communities of India sit at the absolute bottom of society, even below the caste system. Poverty, illiteracy, disease and discrimination are major issues they face. The social stigma faced by indigenous and tribal communities across India continues to be the force of oppression that keeps them trapped in a vicious cycle of poverty.

By purchasing this item, you are helping to empower and provide ongoing employment income for the women who make these handmade products. Together we can provide alternative options for disadvantaged women to lift them out of poverty and help them to become self-sustaining and independent.
