Mothers of Reinvention
In India, artisans have always transformed discarded fabrics and waste into the latest thing
Long before recycling became the norm, and upcycling became in vogue, India practiced all manner of turning old to new. Kantha, its age-old technique of restitching fabrics into original pieces, inspired an upcycling movement in the fashion world. And India’s homewares industry continues to find ways to reinvent what came before. Here are just a few examples.
Hand knitted, hand quilted or hand knotted, all of Karaak Decor’s pieces are crafted from upcycled fabrics, yarn or garments.
