Yalpanam Sari Necklace
One plate of food is donated for every item purchased.
Inspired by our visit to Jaffna, this boho-chic recycled sari and bead necklace supports an uplifting cause and promoting sustainability.
These pieces are made for Rosena Sammi by women in Jaffna who survived the brutal thirty-year Sri Lankan civil war only to face grave hardship. With husbands either murdered or missing, they are left to raise their families while tackling the challenges of poverty, abuse, mental health trauma and marginalization. By purchasing a Pedro Bracelet you are empowering a women to rebuild a better life for her and her family. We partnered with the NGO Sari Connect to bring you these playful pieces, which are fashioned from recycled saris donated from all over Sri Lanka.
All pieces are unique and colors and patterns will vary as these styles use recycled saris.
Consider adding on the Unmai Pouch made from recycled rice sacks and perfect for gifting or storing these accessories.
We have partnered with The Hindu Board of Education Children’s Homes in Jaffna, helping more than 250 children who have lost either one or both parents during the Sri Lankan civil war. For every item purchased from the Unmai Truth Collection a plate of food will be donated to these children.
