Handwoven sash belt by Greek brand "Hishuk"

 

This handwoven belt for dress can be wrapped twice around the waist. It is tied by passing it through the wooden ring in the way you want. Fringes are long but you can cut them at the desirable length or make braids from them.

It is made with two types of yarn, brown and blue are fine cotton, golden is rayon yarn (artificial silk). The ring is of natural wood.

Weaving is acknowledged as one of the oldest surviving crafts in the world. This belt is made with a pick-up weaving technique, which can create complex patterns. It’s called “pick-up” because, row after row, certain threads need to be lifted up or dropped; a slow process, which however creates a wonderful result.
