  • the story

In Fine Feather

If you've got it, flaunt it! Made to stand out, this attention-grabbing accessory dances with the vibrant colors and fantastic textures of needlework by fair-trade artisans in Peru. The peacock's distinct plumage is created using curly bouclé thread, which provides a texture that is more varied and tactile than traditional embroidery. The rust-proof buckle is sealed with a silver patina, composed of a zinc, aluminum, magnesium, and copper combination. Designed by Jenny Krauss. Handmade in Peru.

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."

This belt is on the wide side, but it is beautiful and I LOVE it. Most of my jeans have wide loops anyhow.

    It's a beautiful, well-fitting belt. I've worn it several times already and was very happy with it each time. The colors and workmanship are very good, and it really makes an outfit pop.

    Comments about PEACOCK BELT:

    The belt itself is beautiful and well made. It is wider than I thought it would be so it doesn't fit in the belt loops of my jeans without curling which sort of ruins the peacock effect.

      Comments about PEACOCK BELT:

      I was looking for a go to belt to wear with jeans. This belt is perfect. The colors look beautiful with denim. I get tons of compliments on it. I ordered the lg and it is very long. I had to alter it
      by 4 inches and I wear a 30. My only constructive criticism is the
      measurements per size were not listed. Delivery was fast-3 days for me.
