GreenSewn is upcycling at it’s finest.  Strips of recycled, vintage, silk saris are carefully handsewn together to create beautiful scarves and wraps that can be worn an infinite number of ways.  I would either wear these looped and draped elegantly around my neck or as a wrap to keep me warm on airplanes, but they can we worn around your head, as a shawl, or even around the waist or chest as a beach coverup.  And in addition to offering eco-conscious wares, GreenSewn donates to Trees For The Future so that 10 trees are planted with every purchase!  Click here for this scarf and here to browse and find the unique, orGLAMic scarf for you!
