Framed Traditions – Handmade Sari Art

This is a beautiful idea by American company Framed Traditions, which takes vintage clothes and recycling to a different level. Taking parts of old saris which are transformed into works of art, each sari is carefully pleated and bound into frames which can be displayed on walls. What I also liked about the company is that they are willing to donate 10% of each sale towards funding children’s education in India. This is a great way to re-use traditional clothes which are too old or damaged to be worn again, especially, if they have been handed down by older generations and have a personal meanings attached. I’d like to see similar frames made with clothes from other cultures (imagine a flamenco dress frame!) – would anyone try this?
