Meet the Shakti.ism upcycled sari pouch!
Perfect for carrying your cards, keys, face mask, earphones and any other little bits you don't want to keep in your pocket. These lovely little pouches are made using reclaimed sari fabric (mixed fibres). The inner lining is also made from an offcut piece of fabric from a complimentary upcycled sari, and is divided into two handy compartments. About 50% than our original sari wallets, these pouches are convenient for organising things in your handbag or rucksack, or for travel storage, art supplies, and just about anything else! Every pouch is eco-friendly, unique and stylish – with a hint of ethnic design.
Each pouch purchased from Shakti.ism comes with a hand-printed recycled card with information about our impact in India and signed by its maker.
Our saris are from all over India and beyond, which means we have a wide variety of patterns and traditions represented. Many were generously donated especially for this social initiative. Because every sari is unique, each zip pouch has its own story and is truly one-of-a-kind. Most saris are comprised of multiple colours and patterns intended to compliment each other when draped, which is why no two items made from the same sari are the same. Colours and patterns may vary from the photographs, depending on which part of the saris were used. Some finished items have minor imperfections, which makes them even more charming and distinctive.
By purchasing this item, you are helping to empower and provide ongoing employment income for the women who make these handmade products. The demand for Shakti.ism's products provides these women with dignified employment, a living wage, hope and opportunities for their children. Together we can provide alternative options for disadvantaged women with the aim to lift them out of poverty and help them to become self-sustaining and independent.
