Green Sewn 100% Recycled Vintage Saris Silk Scarves and Wraps Review and Giveaway

Photobucket

This giveaway is now closed. Thanks for stopping by. 

One of the quickest ways to dress up an outfit is to add a colorful scarf or wrap. This simple accessory can turn a plain outfit into an "OMG" outfit in a snap.

While many traditional silk scarves consist of a few colors, one simple pattern and fabric, Green Sewn scarves and wraps are unique in that they are "green sewn" from 100% recycled vintage Indian Saris. A 35" wide silk wrap consists of at least eight different patterns recycled from a variety of vintage saris. Thank you Dan from Green Sewn for sending my the 35" wide wrap for this review.

From Green Sewn - GreenSewn is an eco fashion design company that creates unique eco-chic one of a kind scarves by recycling old vintage saris. If you don't know what a sari is, it's a long (usually 15 feet or more) garment worn by women in India. Our recycled vintage sari scarves are colorful, intricately patterned, and sometimes have intricate gold "zari" work hand woven into the borders. We collect the softest and prettiest old saris and lovingly recycle them into luxurious, authentic, ultra limited edition and gloriously colorful green fashion creations that are both sexy and sustainable.
Our designs are made from upcycled materials, and each piece is unique, with it's own special history and charm. Slight imperfections and signs of wear from a past life are normal and we believe they add to the beauty and authenticity of the product. To make selection easier, we group colors together into families and the colors shown on our site are representations. You will get close to, but not exactly what you see on this site. We are confident that you will love your one of a kind item.

The Review - The wrap I received is similar to the one shown in the picture above, with colors in the red family. The colors are so vibrant and will certainly make this wrap the focal point of any outfit. This accessory can either be worn as a wrap or a scarf.

Upon close inspection, the slight imperfections only add character, just enough to make me wonder about the "past lives" of this wrap. Notice the different patterns that all come together to make this one-of-a kind wrap.

The wrap measures approximately 6 feet long, 35" wide and is made from a minimum of 75% recycled silk saris. The balance is made from other assorted, recycled materials. As a fragile, silk item the wrap is dry clean only. The Green Sewn scarves and wraps are made in India.

While red is not for everyone, I am able to wear tomato red shades and love the patterns and colors that make up this "green" item. I tried it on with a white top as a wrap, and tied it into different configurations and wore it as a scarf. I tied the ends together, wrapped it around my neck and wore it as an "infinity" scarf also.


For all of us that believe in recycling and eco-friendly products, Green Sewn accessories like this wrap are a beautiful way of going green.
