Lulu Vintage Vest is made from two Kantha blankets. Kantha blankets are made from layers of cotton saris sewn together by a running stitch. Being made of multiple saris, the inside always has an interesting contrast to the outer sari. It has lovely big pockets and all edges are finished with bias binding in organic cotton.
All SISSEL EDELBO styles are being upcycled of vintage sari and in that way sustainable. In the past, these saris has been worn by the Indian women, which means that smaller imperfections such as small stains and loose threads can occur. However, to us these imperfections are the clothes' unique beauty flaws. They reflect the life and the love that the previous owner has added to the fabric. We hope you will love the story of the material as much as we do - FROM ONE WOMAN TO ANOTHER.
