This tribal fusion belly dance belt is 32" long (81cm) x 3" (7.6cm) wide at widest point. Yarn falls are 24" long (61cm). I found this embroidered black velvet belt at the Women Safe shelter resale shop. It was definitely handmade, and very well done considering how hard it was to sew through. The recycled genuine leather medallions came from another belt I found at the American Cancer Society Discovery shop. I added my favorite waziri buttons and some small floral gilit plates, as well as yarn falls in black, brown, and moss green. The yarn falls are attached to clear acrylic end rings which are hidden behind the leather medallions. Everything is sewn on by hand, never glued, so it can withstand years of abuse.

All Merry Maenad items are made by hand, not machine, in a smoke free home. There's just something therapeutic about sitting at my workbench in the middle of the night with nothing but a needle and embroidery floss. Vintage fabrics and trims are always dry cleaned before I sew them, so there's no musty odor. Metal embellishments are cleaned first too.

Read my store policies to find out info on Returns (yes, you can return it), Shipping (fast and friendly), gift wrapping (it's free), and other important stuff.

Like the belt but not the size? I happily do custom work in just about any size. Tell me what size you need, which belt you like, and what you like best about it. Is it the color combo? The style? The fabric? The embellishments? I can’t recreate the exact same thing twice, but I will do my best to capture the spirit of what you want. Want something completely different? I love a good challenge. Convo me with a custom request.
