Traditional pattern embroidery highlights the neutral cream background felt belt. Folk art inspired design by Jenny Krauss. Each one is unique!
After weaving the base, the artisans felt the belt slightly and then embroider with cotton thread. The combination is beautiful.
Throughout Mexico there are fair trade cooperatives that employ indigenous women to create traditional craft items. This is often the only opportunity for them to earn money in poverty stricken rural areas. Using natural fibers and ancestral hand sewing techniques, each item is a unique example of their beautiful craftsmanship. Your purchase helps to sustain these women, their families,and their community.
The belt has 5 sets of holes spaced 2" apart so they are versatile. You can wear the same belt on your waist or hips. They also stretch slightly, like a pair of jeans, and will conform to your body after a few days of wear.
