This fun little belt is made from scarlet taffeta wrapped over a sturdy leather base (**notice to vegans: this is genuine leather**). Decorated with old steel washers, bright colorful buttons, and small gold dangles. Belt is 30" long x 1" wide (76cm x 2.5cm). Simple black tie included. Large washers on the end caps are quite old and though fully cleaned, have a tarnished patina (please see photos). It looks cute worn as is, but can become part of your belly dancing costume when paired above hip scarves, fringe and tassels, or bells and coins.

The 3rd and 4th photos show the belt worn with Merry Maenad's Burgundy & Bronze Belly Dancing Bra (sold separately), which you can view here:

When he wasn’t outside, my grandpa was always at his workbench. He left behind a collection of handcrafted woodwork, jars of metal pieces, washers, bolts, nails, you name it. I happened to find a jar of his old steel washers next to a box of my grandma’s buttons, and this belt is the result of that coincidence.
