Saafa Ram is an Indian tailor whose gift for sewing is matched only by his ability to see the potential in even the most well-loved fabric items. After wearing out a saafa given to him as a present, he turns the turban into a odhni, a head scarf, for his wife. When the odhni wears out, he skillfully transforms it into a shirt for his son. The shirt then becomes a doll and then a decorative rose. When the rose wears out, he turns it into something memorable that will never again wear out.
