Bangladesh & Germany, Dipdii Textiles, Upcycled Sari Reversible Shirt Size S/38
Unique piece & reversible shirt made by hand out of upcycled saris.
In rural Bangladesh a woman gets one sari per year from her family on occasion of the main Muslim or Hindu festival. A man gets one lungi, which is a piece of cloth wrapped around as skirt. When the saris and lungis are worn out, they are traditionally recycled into blankets: about six layers of those cotton clothes are xed together with hundreds of stitches made by hand.
Over the years with everyday use, the surface layers of the blankets peel o and the hidden layers appear. The vibrant and incredible colorful textured surface is an imprint of its own little family cosmos. These textiles form the basis of this project.
In another upcycling process through the excellent craftsmanship of many women around the villages of Rudrapur and Birgonj in Bangladesh these fabrics are turned into clothes in contemporary design.
The shirt can be worn on both sides.
