Sari recycled silk ribbon, is made in India or Nepal,and is repurposed sari silk fabric. The ends or remnants of the Sari silk would otherwise be treated as trash, and sent to a landfill. This wonderful ability to create jobs for women otherwise not able to sustain an income, is what fair trade is all about. This sari silk is sewn in strips end to end to make this wonderful yarn for trim, quilting, mixed media, altered art, embellishments, beading, scrapbooking, jewelry, knitting and more. These are ribbons that vary in width,from 1/2" to 1 and 1/2" wide. and frayed lightly on the edges, for a shabby chic look.
