Faja / Belt with Metallic Embroidery and braided fringe
Handwoven and hand embroidered Guatemalan Mayan "Fajas" (belts or sashes) with metallic embroidery. The "faja" wraps around the waist a number of times with the skirt tucked in.
Note: the model in the picture (Anselma's daughter) is wearing a beaded faja, in the same design as the embroidered one.
Beaded belts are also available.
The belt with braided fringe is 3.5" wide, 130" long and has 42" of embroidery.
