Sari for Change has been riding the shift in the fashion
industry for six years with a focus being on ethical working conditions, development, and training of unskilled and unemployed women.
We use the sari as an upcycling fabric resource to create innovative fashion products, telling a story of women empowerment, cultural evolution, and shifts in identity. This forms a greater part of the Fashion Revolution Movement.
From the point of receiving a sari from our donors and community and throughout the process of production we create a sharing economy. A Sari for Change product tells a story of
evolving culture and transforming identities: from a grandmother who has donated her
traditional bridal garments to this cause so that the value, story, and worth of the Sari is transformed
into a modern piece that bears resemblance to the original piece. A piece that carries weight and years
of tradition. At Sari for Change, we value women empowerment; as it is through our training program and processes that allow for a woman to become self-sufficient to enable her to make better decisions for herself and her family.
Our Kimonos have proven to be one of the most popular garments. A Japanese inspired design that we chose to make our own at Sari for Change as the sari lends itself to this design to show off sleeves and borders that are brightly textured and patterned. The kimono is versatile as when styling it can transform from loungewear to street, resort, and evening wear.
