How to use sari (or any cloth) gift wrap

Shakti.ism upcycled sari gift wrap is an eco-friendly alternative to wrapping paper, which is often not possible to recycle due to ink and adhesive residue. Each wrap is unique and one-of-a-kind, handmade from a pre-loved sari. Click below for step-by-step instructions on how to wrap absolutely anything with sari gift wrap!

How to use sari gift wrap

Why should we empower disadvantaged women anyway?

Start with why: learn all about Shakti.ism's mission and why we do what we do. By providing opportunities for women from marginalised communities to learn transferable skills like sewing and tailoring, we can help them to gain stable employment, to achieve financial independence, and gain the self-confidence and respect they deserve.

I'd recommend the shop and its products to anyone. The items are beautifully made, so pretty and come wrapped in lovely scarves. No plastic bags! Excellent in every way and great to be supporting working women in India and Bangladesh
