We’ve got your back – literally. A collaboration between I was a Sari and eco-design line 959, these backpacks combine the vibrancy and cultural pull of pre-loved saris with the sturdy, reliable support of upcycled car seat belts. A step towards increased responsibility and environmental consciousness in the fashion industry, they make a statement that goes beyond just style.

About 959: 959® is an eco- design line, created by recycling used car seat belts. A creative, versatile and innova- tive idea, carried out by the designer Paolo Ferrari.
The re-use of 959® safety belts combined with our upcycled saris has given life to a
series of original and elegant bags.
Sustainability: If we used virgin fabric and dyes our carbon footprint and water usage would be off the charts. Instead, our circular production uses pre-loved saris sourced in Mumbai, produced by local women.
