This belt is truly a work of wearable art, produced over many hours with intricate hand embroidery. The warm olive base is accented with an energetic floral pattern in red, blue, and ivory.
Fits most standard belt loops so you can wear with your favorite jeans, or try layering it over a sweater dress to change up the look!
Made in Peru according to fair trade guidelines, creating employment opportunities for indigenous women in rural areas.
Small fits size 0-4 (35" long, holes are between 23" and 31")
Medium fits size 6-14 (41" long, holes are between 28" and 37")
Large fits size 14-20 (47" long, holes are between 34" and 43")
These belts have 5 sets of holes spaced 2" apart so they are versatile; you can wear the same belt on your waist or hips. They also stretch slightly, like a pair of jeans, and will conform to your body after a few days of wear.
Jenny Krauss artisans live in and near Ayacucho, Peru and are masters in the crafts of weaving and embroidery. The region is poor and remote so finding customers for their wares is difficult. Jenny Krauss collaborates with these artisans to help them maintain a steady income through international sales of their work.
Most of the artisans are women, who usually spend the morning attending to their family farms and the afternoons embroidering. Their babies are often wrapped in a blanket on their back and older children play nearby.
The average cost of living in Ayacucho and its environs is 400-500 Peruvian Nuevo soles (PEN) per month, but these artisans earn on average 1000 PEN/month. Your purchase helps these communities sustain their livelihoods and traditions.
All work is certified by the Fair Trade Federation.

Our Customers Say...
Ash & Rose is one of my favorite boutiques in Boston. I only get a chance to go when I'm visiting about once a year or so, but I always make the trip because of the amazing selection of products at this store. Most importantly to me, EVERYTHING is ethically sourced, and the owners take great care to learn about the story behind each and every product that they stock in the store.
I shop online and I support the ethical clothing industry, but it's difficult to find ethical fashion that is my style. This is where Ash & Rose comes in! I love their styles and their pricing is reasonable. The clothing is of good quality and it fits well, and my orders arrive earlier than estimated. Love this store and I definitely recommend it.
