#SariStories is an oral history journey through stories and clothing. We delve into three generations of South Asian women’s lives through these stories told in audio–visual micro-docs. A participatory process, the public is invited to add to and contribute their own stories. The stories will be hosted on an interactive website: TheSariDress.com. Unpacking sari stories (#saristories) will reveal untold stories in discussion with women in celebration of their saris.
We also respect the tradition of wearing saris; there are many vintage saris that are heritage pieces. We do not cut these antiques. Upsari is developing a beautiful collection of rare and vintage saris.
Once we have launched, we will make some of these precious saris available for sale.
