The Shubrah Collection upcycles Indian sari fabrics into unique dresses and special occasion ensembles. What is an Indian Sari? It is five yards of cloth, hand loomed in traditional weaves or printed, using cotton or silk. The antique ones are particularly beautiful as the borders were usually made by hand using real silver or gold threads called "Zari".
Each sari tells a story- about the weaver and the owner. Which village the weaver is from? When was the wooden hand block print motif made? What natural dyes were used? How many man hours did it take to make 5 yards of cloth, which is really a work of art?
