The Magic of Sarees: A decade of love and magic
An online community of saree lovers, the genesis of MOS lies in the ardent love for sarees and to spread its magic far and wide. Every woman treasures her collection of sarees- the rich history, stories of where they came from, who they were gifted by, serves as reminders each time she opens her wardrobes. Sarees are cultural artefacts and we at MOS Preloved, preserve the sarees and their stories so that new ones could be created and the magic continues..
From the Curator of Preloved
Preloved as a concept is very dear to my heart and has been a way of life for me. Being the younger of us sisters I inherited clothes, books and even the study was previously used. Preloved according to me has more character than something bought off the shelf as it carries a little bit of the previous owner’s personality/memories.
Coming to Preloved sarees, when you wear something that comes Preloved, you get wrapped in a little bit of that love. I continue to drape sarees that belong to my mother/sister/friends. At least 30% of my wardrobe comprises preloved sarees (inherited/gifted/begged, borrowed, stolen).
Curating and putting together this collection has been exciting. Women have parted with their much-loved sarees and saree stories in the hope that these sarees find equally loving new owners. While narrating the stories, they have re-lived a little bit of their life journey. A saree that was bought for a baby shower or a gift from a special friend or one that someone emptied her pockets for on a visit to Kolkata or the hard to resist bargain one from Gwalior. The stories involve other people, places, occasions, emotions, all of it bundled into the six yards.
We hope you will both find your choice of sarees among these as well as contribute some of your favourite preloved ones on the platform. And good karma for being a part of the sustainable fashion movement- could not get better than this.
Let us continue to spread the magic of sarees. MOS Preloved, previously owned and always loved.
