CHINDI JUTE PLACEMAT

The origins of chindi weaving come from a humble place, but the concept is now recognized as a "zero waste initiative". Historically, in Mumbai, women began upcycling old cotton clothing, creating useful items for their homes to save money and resources. Today cotton remnants and sustainable jute fibers are woven together and sewn to create everything from placemats to baskets, giving recycled materials an opportunity to live a second life.  

But the best part... Chindi is also a movement that has empowered women and helped to make them financially independent in a way which is also creatively satisfying.
