Sari Form & Thread Earrings

Cotton sari fabric is found in abundance in the marketplaces in India. Makers and designers have found many ways to upcycle these stunning textiles when they are no longer usable as garments. These Sari Form & Thread Earrings are a fantastic example of that innovation! Cotton sari fabric wraps the halfmoon shape at the top of the earrings with a blue, grey and maroon cotton thread-wrapped form hanging below with a rounded triangle shaped charm layered over the bottom form.

THE MAKERS

TARA Projects stands for "Trade Alternative Reform Action." Working in a 125-mile radius of Delhi, TARA is a fair trade program for community development and business. The organization enables hundreds of artisans who create some of the major handicraft lines of North India to sell their products internationally. TARA is one of the pioneering Indian organizations in the field of fair wages, non formal education programs for children and women, health and environmental awareness and further development for its member artisans. Artisan benefits from TARA include medical insurance, interest-free loans and advances, a savings program and skills training. Ten Thousand Villages has purchased products from TARA since 1986.
