psychedelic swirly mod barkcloth belt! (all my favorite adjectives in one belt.)
the belt is 30 inches wide by 8 inches tall. it is fully adjustable from 30 inches, because it laces up the back.
note* please be aware that the side seams are 15 inches apart, and will be closer to the front of the belt when the belt is worn wider than 30 inches. they're relatively unobtrusive seams, so it may not matter. just fyi. :)
i made this belt from the most amazing barkcloth muumuu that i found in an antiques store. the cloth is SO colorful, soft, and beautiful.
Barkcloth is a very ancient type of textile, and was once common in Asia, Africa, Indonesia, and the Pacific. The cloth is made primarily from trees of the Moraceae family, including Broussonetia papyrifera, Artocarpus altilis, and Ficus natalensis. The fibrous inner bark is soaked and beaten into sheets and dried in the sun.
