This shirt is not only stylish and versatile, but it's also environmentally & socially conscious.
Wearing upcycled fabric clothing is a powerful visual reminder to others of your personal commitment to sustainability and your stand against fast fashion.
Each shirt is handmade and one-of-a-kind, featuring unique patterns and colours from the upcycled silk saris used in its creation. The unisex design makes it the perfect addition to any wardrobe and can be dressed up or down for any occasion.
With its soft and luxurious texture, the upcycled silk sari shirt is not only a fashion statement, but it's also incredibly comfortable to wear as, of course, it's been worn in for you!
Silk is a versatile fabric that is uniquely suitable for all types of weather conditions. It's as if there is a natural thermostat embedded in this luxurious fabric, making it a great all-season textile. Not only does it create a cosy layer of warm air against your skin during cooler temperatures, but it also has exceptional moisture-wicking abilities. It can absorb up to 30% of its weight in water, making it an ideal fabric for hot weather as it helps to keep you dry and comfortable.
This shirt has loose-fitting design to ensure maximum comfort and mobility.
But what sets this shirt apart from the rest is its commitment to sustainability. By using upcycled silk saris, we are not only reducing waste and promoting a circular economy, but we are also preserving the unique cultural heritage of the sari.
And the sustainability doesn't stop there - even the buttons on this shirt are eco-friendly. They're made from coconut, a renewable and biodegradable material that adds a unique touch to the shirt's design.
RAINBOWLIFE & GENKI believe in the beauty of upcycling - each item has a story to tell. Imagine the tales this shirt could tell, the places it's been, and the memories it's witnessed.
Please note that as the silk saris are vintage, small marks and variations in colour and texture are to be expected, we believe these 'imperfections' give our pieces their distinct character and charm.
Genki works closely with independent tailors and fabric traders in Rajasthan, India, ensuring complete transparency in every step of the production process. We take pride in our personal relationships with everyone involved in crafting Genki clothing - from the families who sell the upcycled fabrics to the independent tailors who lovingly create each piece by hand.
