- Hand-formed giraffe sculpture
- Papier mâché base
- Wrapped in a patchwork of vintage sari fabric remnants
- Different fabric combinations ensure no two will be exactly the same
Our Vintage Sari Giraffe Sculpture will be a delightful addition to your décor. Indian artisans hand-form the base sculpture of a friendly giraffe from papier mâché and then carefully wrap the form in a hand-stitched patchwork of exquisite vintage sari remnants, creating a colorful, one-of-a-kind art piece.
The modern Indian word "sari" is derived from ancient words meaning "strip of cloth." True to this name, a traditional sari is a colorful piece of fabric five to nine yards in length and two to four feet wide that can be wrapped around the body in a variety of ways...more than 80 draping styles have been recorded.
Discouraging unnecessary waste, Indian artisans use reclaimed sari fabric remnants in a variety of artistic ways, such as wrapping this charming tabletop giraffe sculpture. As each example is completely handmade, using a different combination of fabrics each time, your giraffe is guaranteed to be unlike any other.
