After a brief hiatus, Twitter Thursday is back to showcase companies embracing sustainability and giving you a chance to win their products!

This week, we’ve partnered with Greensewn, an eco-fashion design company that creates unique eco-chic one of a kind scarves by restoring old vintage saris. They are gloriously colorful, intricately patterned, and sometimes have delicate gold “zari” work hand woven into the borders. GreenSewn collects the softest and prettiest old saris and lovingly upcycles them into luxurious, authentic, ultra limited edition green fashion creations that are both sexy and sustainable.

Production is done at a workshop near New Delhi, using locally sourced hand-selected vintage saris.

    I’d love to win because these colors are beautiful and very fashionable.

    I wear scarves almost every day to work; I’d love to win one of these beautiful creations! It would be a pleasure to “advertise” Greensewn’s upcycled scarf as an ethical green choice when deciding on fashion accessories.
