Designers Kamaldeep Kaur and Rohini and Dipti Singh have listed down some innovative ways with which you can reuse the old sari.

* You can make a trendy Anarkali or a kurta out of it which can be teamed with a set of palazzos.

* If it is a georgette or a chiffon sari, it can be reinvented into a sharara and a dupatta which you can pair with a kurta.

* If it is a silk sari, then you can make a dupatta out of it and pair it up with a plain solid colour kurta and pants. You can also make cushion covers with it.

* If it is a Benarasi sari, then you can cut out the border through the entire length, and put it on a plain colour chiffon or georgette sari. You can make cushion covers or dupatta or cloth bags with the rest of it.

* You can also make lehenga for girls, kurtas, bed runner with the border. Another option can be curtains.

* Borders from old saris can be re-used on new saris. You can also add a trendy twist to the old sari.
