saheli saree kimono violet
each of these kimonos are handmade from old sourced sarees, found in the villages of rajasthan. made with zari (metallic thread woven into the silk brocade), the patterns are one-of-a-kind; each one feels special and personal. due to the age of the materials, these kimonos are delicate: we advise removing rings and bangles before putting them on as they can snag the fabric.
