Since the very beginnings of Bellerose, we aim to bring you unique pieces you'll cherish and love for years to come. Skilfully crafted by women in the heart of India’s northern region, Jharkhand, these Kantha jackets are the product of a collaboration with Solid Crafts. This non-profit organization strives to create unique garments by repurposing vintage saris all the while giving fair working conditions to their seamstresses.
Each sari was handpicked and repaired before being cut, assembled, and embroidered by hand in the Solid Crafts' workshops. Therefore, this Kantha jacket is one of a kind.
Part of a circular economy, the Kantha jacket is crafted under fair conditions and in full transparency, all the while saving gorgeous saris from landfills, honoring Indian history and culture, and keeping the traditional Kantha-craftsmanship alive.
Solid Crafts nurtures a personal relationship with every artisan who makes the Kanthas. They are ensured fair wages, a safe working environment, and are empowered through social projects.
The Kantha jackets are available exclusively online and in selected stores: Brussels Stéphanie, Uccle, Gent, Knokke, Antwerp, and Paris Jacob.
