Belt in Bloom

This colorful belt features intricate Peruvian embroidery that will add modern, funky flair to any outfit. Traditional floral patterns bloom to life under the embroidery-skilled hands of fair trade artisans in Peru. The belts are woven with a curly wool thread that produces unique textures that are more varied and tactile than traditional embroidery.
The simple buckle is made from zinc, aluminum, magnesium and copper, and sealed with a rust-proof silver patina. Handmade in Peru.

Jenny Krauss

Jenny Krauss 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 but 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."

Today, 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 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."

      Product was a gift and was enjoyed by recipient. Shipping and service was outstanding, arrived unexpectedly early during Christmas rush and was packed in excellent condition. Would recommend purchasing from uncommon goods in the future, so far all of their products and support exceeded expectations. Thank you!

          This is my second belt. Love it because it adds "bam" to my clothes. Make sure you go down a size when ordering because the belt can stretch out unlike leather belts. Hoping they get more to choose from cause I would by another!!!

          Sizing is off

              The small size was too small since I had to use the last set of holes -
              exchanged for a medium and the overlap was way too much, so I'm very disappointed with the sizing. I usually wear a size 6 in a pant.

                      Love this belt! The colors are bright and it really makes a statement. I ordered the paisley one first, thinking it was a black background but it was actually navy so I returned it for the floral one which is black. I wear a size 8 and got the Medium and it's a good fit with maybe a 5" overlap. I've only worn it once so far but received many compliments.

                          I purchased this belt as an accessory to jazz up outfits. I recently wore it with a denim dress and black leggings, or a black tunic with black leggings and received many compliments. The pallet of colors on this belt are absolutely beautiful. Because of the woven nature of the belt, it tends to stretch so I have about 8 inches of belt left over after buckling but it isn't a big drawback for me. I ordered the small and the medium and just happen to be inbetween. I am glad I splurged to purchase it!

                                  I have eyed this belt for a while but waited because of the price. The fit is great and the belt is slightly stretchy which is nice. It will be a great enhancement when I am dressing more casually. I like unique things that not everyone has and this belt fits that requirement :).

                                      Love, love, love the belt. Read the other reviews and went with a medium, though I'm usually a large. Belt is well constructed and lovely. Only thing I would do differently if I was the designer would be to figure out a different way to bind off the leading edge of the belt. It it double folded and stitched. It's sturdy, but bulky. This means threading it through belt loops is awkward. Notice, though, that it hasn't stopped me from using it...love the belt.
