TALES BY SOLID
The versatile Tales by Solid kantha jacket will be a staple piece in your wardrobe. Made from recycled cotton sarees, we love to combine and create unique stand-out looks.
The kantha jacket comes with a flattering belt to style your look and is made of mixed cotton sari pieces with beautiful print combinations handstitched with organic cotton.
Your handmade Indian kantha jacket is made entirely of sustainable, environmentally friendly and cruelty-free materials.
Recycled sari: Indian women have been using their sewing and weaving skills for years to repurpose traditional sari fabric. Worn and discarded saris have a second life. They are carefully washed and reused. Recycling and upcycling : the alternative for those who care about the planet and our environment.
Given that the saris have been previously owned by women in India, the product may have small imperfections, marks or loose threads. Each product is handmade, 100% authentic, and holds a story from its previous owner. Each kantha jacket has a unique design, meaning no two are the same in the world. Thanks to the artisans' creative designs, they make it possible to give worn and unwanted sarees to be turned into something new and beautiful. T
he jacket can be worn all year around. In the summer you can wear the jacket open or as a wrap-around, over a simple top or a dress. In winter you can team it
with jeans and a jumper for a beautifully chic look. The jacket can also be turned inside-out and worn with two different prints.
