Our sari silk ribbon has been handmade by a group of women we support in rural India. The artisans hand tear strips of sari silk and sew them to end to form a continuous yarn. Each piece of sari silk, each skein of ribbon yarn has it's own personality. Each skein unique.
By purchasing these yarns you are supporting fair trade, happy working conditions and the continuation of ancient crafts in rural villages giving underprivileged families work within their own homes.
See 'Our Yarn Journey' for more info on the craftspeople and women's co-ops who produce these yarns.
