Sarc is an artisan group in Jaipur, India that has been established for more than 23 years. The group employs people in multiple villages and helps them build sustainable incomes for their families and their futures. By working within the community, this group helps each artisan with their personal goals, like sending their children to good schools.
This artisan group also helps preserve the practices and traditional skills found throughout the participating villages and gives those skills new life in each textile created. Each article of clothing this group creates is a unique work of art produced by the skilled handiwork of multiple artisans.
It really does take a village to contribute to each item’s beauty. Every step in the process—from making the fabric, stitching it together, adding embroidery, dyeing the fabric and applying any number of unique prints and designs—highlights the skills and beautiful traditions found throughout the 25+ villages involved.
I agree that the color doesn't look like it does in the pic but it grew on me and I actually prefer it over the pink (bought them both). Instead of color, my biggest issue is that these do run on the big side and they are very very long, almost could wear as a night shirt. I ended up shortening mine by about 4 inches and now it hits me right at the bottom of my hips, where I prefer. Will be great to wear as a casual shirt and I love the style.
Hubby didn't care for it, and neither did I. Color wasn't for me...I don't think any color would be. Not as pretty as it looks in the picture.
