    This season, the vintage drape is reinvented as a dress, bag and a pretty tea tray

    Your grandmothera��s sari may have outlived its draping moments, but it can reiterate its timelessness as a potli for your wrist, a blanket for your little one or an arty necklace. Thanks to labels like Wunderhaus, Reinvention and House of Wandering Silka�� we can choose from jewellery, home decor and customised shoes made from vintage saris. Our pick of kitschy and elegant ways to re-use those precious six yards of fabric this season. Text: Susanna Chandy & Sumitra Nair
