Product Description


Purple Majesty, 2.95″ wide x 87″ long of pattern (not including the fringe) hand woven belt – trim from the Andes / Chumbis, Ribbon, Ethnic Textiles from South America {1 piece}


The Andes is like my second home; I wish I could go as often as my heart wishes, but the treasures I bring from my trips are what keeps my heart on continue wanderlust. The belts – trims we have gathered are all handmade by local artisans, which includes just about the whole entire family. Mothers, fathers, sons, and daughters are all part of this craft and their craft is what sustains their families. We work hard to find the real makers and love to work with them directly and they too, love to share their stories and craft with us and, we would like to take this opportunity to share them with you.

I have certainly seen a lot of patterning done with supplementary wraps in my travels. Ecuador is full of this technique. These trims are actual belts worn by the Kechua & Quechua women throughout the Andes. It’s very common in the Andean part of Ecuador, where women will wear them around their waist to secure their long split skirt called “anaku”. These are said to be the skirts that most closely resemble those used by Inca women with their long split sides. You also see these “belts” being used to secure the hair, to help secure their babies carried in the back, and also used to adorn other accessories, such as camera straps, purses, and bags, etc.

The belt – trims can be used for all kinds of crafts and also be worn as it is. The trim is finished in both ends with a fringe in the same colors as the central part of the trim. It can be cut, but I advise that you sew a separation line to stop the trim from fraying once cut. All belts-trims are handmade with a lot of love; the colors are vibrant and the beautiful designs show the patterns used in their clothing and history.

The trim dimensions are 2.95 inches wide, 87ga inches long of pattern, not including the fringe which is about seven inches and usually, varies from one side to the other.
