Get Your Black Belt In Embroidery

Cinch this statement piece around dresses and jeans to bring rich texture and brilliant color to any outfit. A product of fair trade artisans in Peru, each belt is hand woven with curly wool thread, producing textures that are more varied and tactile than traditional embroidery.
A simple, weathered buckle made from a cocktail of zinc, aluminum, magnesium and copper is sealed with a rust-proof silver patina. Designed by Jenny Krauss.

Due to the handmade nature, each belt will vary.

Jenny Krauss

Here's the thing about Jenny Krauss' company: it's not about her. Jenny began making baby and home gifts 20 years ago, but has spent the last 10 years providing work for Bolivian and Peruvian artisans, often women with exceptional skills and few options for work.

"The women are often the sole support for their families and the work they do for me has not only helped them financially, but psychologically as well. They speak to me about lack of opportunity and how meaningful it is to create something they can sell. It's a joy to visit them and see changes in their lives."

When she started her company in 1999, Jenny didn't know a thing about business. She had studied art and design. "I didn't have a big plan for my life, but I'm happy that things turned out the way they did. I always knew I'd be involved with creativity and beautiful things.

These days Jenny lives in New York and enjoys designing new products and visiting artisans. "Office work is a drag." She travels to Bolivia and Peru to meet with Fair Trade artisans and to provide them with new projects. "It's important to give and empower those less fortunate. Most people don't have a lot of opportunity to better their lives, so it feels good to be able to contribute something empowering and sustainable."

            I normally hate the feel of a belt but I needed one that would well, hold up my pants, and this one has surpassed my every expectation. It has a little stretch to it and it feels very natural and comfy. It is also gorgeous and when I wear it I feel "dressed up". I am thinking of getting one for my sister for her birthday.

            A GREAT SPLURGE....YOU'LL BE GLAD YOU DID. I HAVE BOTH VERSIONS...LIGHT AND DARK. I BOUGHT SIMILAR PRODUCT MADE BY PRANA AND OTHER MANUFACTURERS BUT THIS IS SUPERIOR DUE TO THE MORE LINED AND STRUCTURED BACKING AND NICE BUCKLE.

            Service and delivery comments:

            ALWAYS FAST AND NO PROBLEM.

            Comments about BLACK FLORAL BELT:

            I have been eyeing this belt for a while and attempting to justify the price.[...] The large seemed smaller than I had anticipated, so I returned it for a medium, which has now seemed to stretch. I wish I had stuck with my original plan for the small. I am 5' 4' 125 pounds, with an athletic build. The large belt had vibrant jewel tones, similar to the picture shown. The medium I received had colors that were more pastel and subdued. I do prefer the deeper hues, but was aware that colors may vary. I have enjoyed wearing the belt with jeans and cords. It allows for a large variety of color choices for shirts. I don't regret this purchase!

              I simply love this belt. I've been looking at it in the catalog for a long time and even though it's a bit pricey for me to spend on a belt, I decided to splurge and I'm glad I did. The colors are vibrant and the belt is well-made, although I suggest you order a size up from what you normally buy. I take a M but ordered the L to be on the safe side and it's worked out well.
