Sacred Sari Throw
A one-of-a-kind, sustainable wedding or newborn gift, a treasured fireside blanket to curl up under, the Sacred Sari Throw is handcrafted from recycled cotton saris by artisans of Sacred Mark, a workshop with Prokritee in rural Bangladesh. Saris are collected and repurposed into six-layered Sacred Sari Throws by women who have re-trained as artisans having left the red light district sex trade. The name "Sacred Mark" was inspired by Nobel Prize-winning Bengali poet Rabindranath Tagore, whose poetry speaks to lives transformed.

THE MAKERS

Prokritee (meaning "nature" in Bengali) manages several handicraft enterprises and helps other groups sell their products in local and foreign markets. Prokritee and its enterprises provide jobs for poor rural women. By providing jobs for women, Prokritee improves women’s standard of living and helps them send their children to school. The organization provides skills development training to artisans. Prokritee creates and promotes income–generating projects that benefit the artisans, adhere to good safety and environmental standards, and have the potential to become self–reliant. Prokritee was established in 2001 as an independent organization. Ten Thousand Villages has purchased products from Prokritee and its predecessor MCC Bangladesh since 1986.
