Beauty Rest

These exquisite patchwork pillow covers are a sure way to brighten your day, as you also help to brighten the lives of those who make them. A brilliant accent for your sunny living room or favorite reading nook, their bright colors come from a patchwork of upcycled sari dress material. Each one will have a unique combination of shades and patterns, and is available in a vivid blue, natural, or cheerful yellow palette. The cases have a light cotton backing and a simple, zipper-free closure for easy use.

They're produced by a women's artisan cooperative in a village outside of Rajasthan, India, and each is painstakingly cut and stitched together using traditional embroidery and quilting techniques. The patchwork of each pillow cover requires intensive labor, but the result not only an extraordinary home accent, but also the opportunity to create a better standard of living for themselves, their children and their community. Handmade in India.
Pillow insert not included.

Vintage saris are full of bright colors and bold patterns, so it would be a shame to let the lovely fabrics go to waste just because they're no longer worn. Would you update your old throw pillows with these colorful covers?

Stunning! Love that it's doing a number of things: giving jobs to women in India and is also recycled.

I like them. But (once again) I feel i could make them for cheaper than it would cost to buy and ship.

I love the recycled sari idea, and the colors are beautiful. However, the other recycle sari items I've seen have been priced way higher that I'd be willing to pay for them, so I suspect it would be the same for these pillow covers.
