Midnight Blue Sash SA52 - Pirate Belt - Guatemalan Textiles - Boho Accessories - Reenactment Clothing - Ikat Fabric Sash - Bohemian Belt

Midnight Blue Sash is a hand woven Guatemalan fabric featuring a dark blue medley with a whispering white ikat motif... a black central stripe with blue pin stripes edged with green, orange & brown... followed by black and white ikat stripes edged with violet and green... then the grand finale, this entire sash is edged with a party of multi-colored accent stripes (no.52).

3 1/2" wide by approximately 90" long, this dark blue fabric belt can be used as a sash belt for your gypsy bohemian style clothing and boho chic fashion wear... for special occasion events as Reenactment Clothing for Renaissance Fairs, LARP Costumes, Music Festivals and Burning Man Fashion statements.

These hand woven Guatemalan textiles can also be used to make Obi Sashes or Kimono Belts… hat scarves or head bands… guitar or drum straps… Use them for embellishments, decorative trim, house decor… or any other crafty project which your imagination would like to make with them !

This woven belt can be used 'as is'. Please note that it's length measurement is approximate and includes unfinished loom warps at both ends. The length of the fringes will also vary from sash to sash. Handmade, these Fabric Belts will show the usual charms of human imperfection (what some people refer to as 'flaws'). If there are any, they are minor. I have sold this fabric for many years, and I hope you will be super pleased as all my other customers have been. Please hand wash in cold water only.

ABOUT Brizel's SASH FABRICS from Guatemala

These gorgeous vintage fabric belts are fine quality woven Guatemalan textiles... reclaimed from Las Manos, a business which through FAiR TRADE principles commissioned their creation directly from the weavers in Guatemala throughout the 1980's. When Las Manos went out of business in the early 00's I inherited (so to speak) approximately 80 different fabric sash rolls, all bearing distinct designs & colors.

In Guatemala, this type of traditional Mayan belt is still worn today- sometimes the only remnant of the native costume worn by men. Women, on the other end of the spectrum, have kept to traditional wear much more passionately.

Sashes- called Bandas (men’s) and Fajas (women’s) can range from thin to wide, plain to colorful, striped- with or without plaids, to intricate brocaded designs. Wound around the waist several times- often holding up either pants or skirts- men’s sashes are tied at the bellybutton, the ends allowed to tangle in front; women usually wind theirs and tuck the ends to the side or at the back. Tradition varies by region- style, color, pattern, tying methodology. Nothing is haphazard.

Guatemalan sashes, generally speaking, are the weaving product of a back strap loom. This is a very basic loom which warp strings are tied to a tree on one end... and at the other end has a length of wood and a fabric seat. The weaver sits at this end, holding the tension on the warp strings whilst weaving.

Weaving is a spiritual tradition- affirming connection with the Gods- bringing myth and prayer into physical manifestation. In that spiritual tradition, the warp strings represented the umbilical cord between the divine and the individual... and the tree was 'the' tree of life.
