Seating by Studio Avni

Mumbai-based designer Avni Sejpal upcycles old saris into beautiful seating (also seen on the previous slide). Sejpal said that she gets used saris that have small holes, tears or stains. Although they can no longer be worn as garments, there’s still plenty of fabric. “The fabric is still so beautiful and rich,” she said.

The poofs, folds and rosettes are motifs borrowed from Indian fashion.
