Old World Elegance


This gorgeous vintage belt from India has captivated me. Thinking about the amount of time and painstaking perfection that went into making this amazing piece boggles my mind. The colors and golden embroidery are luscious, oozing an old world elegance.



I dream of a world filled with handmade beauty.

Truly a beautiful belt. I have also seen several vintage handbags from India with gilded-thread embroidery and beads - so lovely and all handmade. Such talent!

Beautiful! I love the Indian little ribbon bracelets too, have you seen them? They usually cost less than $5 at Indian shops.

Beautiful detailing! Is this done with metal thread? I have an old beaded and embroidered collar that is done in similar fashion that has the old metal thread and it is so intricate and lovely. Have a wonderful Saturday Nancy.
