Thrifting means discovering means learning means you're smarter.
So let's go along with this theory because that means I am really really really really smart and I get super smart about once a week and I am the smartest when it's 50% off Salvation Army Family Day. OH WAIT. THAT'S TODAY!
I found this beautiful woven belt and snapped this picture last summer when one of my bestyfriends wore it here. The belt is stamped MADE IN GUATEMALA and it quickly has become one of my favorite summer accessories. I am sure you can see why - rich beautiful colors, intricate detail, and mixed patterns -triple score! Guatemala is known for their Backstrap Weaving Technique tradition and each town has their unique style. I actually found two of these belts that same day but I have yet to snap a picture of the second. I promise I will so you can see the difference in technique and pattern. Each creation is so unique!
In my research on this belt I found a great website called GlobalGiving where you can donate money to help Support Guatemala Weaving Culture - name your price....
