Fajas / Belts with Metallic Embroidery
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 shown in the other photos.
Beaded belts are also available.
These belts are 2.5" wide, 96" long and have 36" of embroidery.
