  • Hand-formed deer sculpture
  • Papier mâché base
  • Wrapped in a patchwork of vintage sari fabric remnants
  • Different fabric combinations ensure no two will be exactly the same
  • Hand-stitched

Crafted from scraps of repurposed sari fabric using traditional Kantha embroidery, each deer is festively attired in bright colors and every piece is vibrantly unique.

Indian artisans hand-form the base sculpture of a deer from papier mâché and then carefully wrap the form in a hand-stitched patchwork of exquisite vintage sari remnants, creating a colorful, one-of-a-kind art piece.

The modern Indian word "sari" is derived from ancient words meaning "strip of cloth." True to this name, a traditional sari is a colorful piece of fabric five to nine yards in length and two to four feet wide that can be wrapped around the body in a variety of ways...more than 80 draping styles have been recorded.

Discouraging unnecessary waste, Indian artisans use reclaimed sari fabric remnants in a variety of artistic ways, such as wrapping this charming tabletop deer sculpture. As each example is completely handmade, using a different combination of fabrics each time, your deer is guaranteed to be unlike any other.
