Upcycled Sari Butterfly Wings

$36.00 $28.00

These vibrant butterfly wings, handmade with sheer sari fabrics, are the perfect addition to dress-up time. Saris have been a part of Indian culture and imagery for thousands of years, and upcycling sari fabrics reincarnates these beautiful textiles while also empowering female artisans to build sustainable livelihoods and communities. These wings were handmade in India under fair trade conditions.

Want to pair this with a book? Try The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle (1969).
