This unique fair-trade Amazon belt was hand-made by a native artisan from the Ampiyacu region of the Peruvian Amazon. This belt is stylish, sturdy and comfortable. It is woven from 1.25 inch wide chambira palm fiber attached to a quality brass-plated buckle. This is a great way to show your appreciation for native culture and the environment and a great choice for vegans and others looking for a belt without leather. This belt has five colored bands that resemble the pattern of a coral snake found in the Amazon rainforest. Each belt comes with a tag listing the artisan’s name, community and the plants they used to make it.
Most models available in four sizes: Small (28-31 inch waist);Medium (32-35 inch waist; Large (36-39 inch waist); Extra-large (40-43 inch waist). A few models that are slightly faded from prolonged exposure to the sun are available at a reduced price.
Made by Brillo Nuevo artisans in the Peruvian Amazon
