Teardrop Sari Birdhouse

One of the most resourceful and innovative practices of the skilled artisans we partner with is the use of recycled and sustainable materials in their designs. This Teardrop Sari Birdhouse utilizes recycled cotton sari textiles and banana fiber woven to create each individual birdhouse in a shape reminiscent of those many birds build for themselves. This results in a birdhouse that you, the birds and the planet we share can all appreciate.
