Solid Crafts brings them together in an honest and sustainable craft workshop that offers meaningful and decent work to these vulnerable, underprivileged but strong women. They make beautiful handmade products that inspire to dream of a better world. And also realise this dream. The saree, or often written as sari, is a traditional garment worn by women throughout India. Saree literally means "strip of cloth" in Sanskrit. Indian women have been using their sewing and weaving skills to repurpose the traditional saree fabric for years. Their creative designs make it possible to give sarees a beautiful second life. They are carefully washed and used to create your unique rug.
It feels airy and soft on the feet or it can be used as wall decoration. It will definitely add some cosiness and character to your home.
100% made in India, from A to Z.
Each rug is unique, so no two in the world are alike. So you get a unique piece in your home. Each product is handmade. For this reason it may have some minor 'imperfections'. These characteristics, which differ from product to product, are a guarantee of absolute authenticity. 100% handmade with love, especially for you.
