About Us

 

 

Sustainably Styled Eco-Fashion


GreenSewn is an eco fashion design company that creates unique eco-chic one of a kind scarves by recycling old vintage saris. If you don't know what a sari is, it's a long (usually 15 feet or more) garment worn by women in India. Our recycled vintage sari scarves are colorful, intricately patterned, and sometimes have intricate gold "zari" work hand woven into the borders. We collect the softest and prettiest old saris and lovingly recycle them into luxurious, authentic, ultra limited edition and gloriously colorful green fashion creations that are both sexy and sustainable. Check out the slideshow to learn more about our process.

 

 

Who


GreenSewn was started by Dan Shir, a 25 year shoe industry veteran based in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Wanting to produce something more green and meaningful, Dan and his longtime agent in India started GreenSewn. Production is done at our workshop near New Delhi, using locally sourced hand-selected vintage saris.

 

About Our Process - Green Sewn

 

 

One of a kind- just like you


.Our designs are made from upcycled materials, and each piece is unique, with it's own special history and charm. Slight imperfections and signs of wear from a past life are normal and we believe they add to the beauty and authenticity of the product. To make selection easier, we group colors together into families and the colors shown on our site are representations. You will get close to, but not exactly what you see on this site. We are confident that you will love your one of a kind item. See our satisfaction guaranteed policy.
