One of a Kind Vintage Silk Re-Creations.
Greensewn re-purposes hand selected vintage silk saris into gorgeous one of a kind scarves, wraps, and accessories.
Chai Jewels is a bohemian-luxury line of talisman jewelry using natural precious and semi-precious stones and recycled metals.
In 1997 a bit of serendipity led our founders to a village deep in the Indian Himalayas and the local women "Sari-Wallahs" who barter with housewives for their old silk saris.
Luxurious, eco-friendly vintage sari silk seemed like a business opportunity. Using connections from previous careers in the shoe business, a line of sandals with interchangeable silk sari straps named Tia's was conceived and launched. Over time however, it became clear that scarves were less seasonal and a fuller use of saris, and thus Greensewn scarves were born.
We are passionate about beautiful, sustainable and ethically produced products. Creative re-purposing is the most environmentally friendly production method possible. Our people and planet friendly process for recycling vintage silk uses a tiny fraction of the energy and resources typically employed in the production of mainstream commercial fashion.
