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

    Your grandmother’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 Silk— 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
