Women’s closets are overflowing with clothes that have been unworn for months, possibly years. This is especially true for Indian clothes that at times hold sentimental value; therefore these iconic pieces will never be thrown out. Meghna Nayak from LataSita has a solution for those who wish to preserve their sarees but still want to make use of them. If you send your sarees in to LataSita, they will transform your piece into a beautiful skirt or dress and give life back to these precious heritage textiles.

This type of approach isn’t new in India; however, the spotlight on sustainable fashion has brought more awareness to the cause and has allowed certain indie designers in India to thrive. While many of these brands do not mass produce their clothes, conscious consumerism is paving the way for more brands to exist in the space. Not only do designers like Meghna restore the old into something new, a process technically referred to as “upcycling”, but she also takes the scraps from these sarees and donates them to an NGO called Goonj that makes sanitary pads for women.
LataSita is a great example of people doing good and also doing more good. Meghna is a passionate advocate for the environment and attempts to conserve, recycle, and reuse where she can while putting a smile on the face of a client.
Seams For Dreams is excited to hear about stories like Meghna’s that stem from pure love and passion for our Mother Earth!
