Description

Brown, black and white This thick long belt has a middle section approx. 160 cm with cords measuring 35 and 17cm, making the whole belt roughly 212 cm long. Linear design. At both ends of the middle (main) section, there are three wrapped cords that then are woven into a cord. One end terminates in two cords knotted together, while the other only has 5 cm of a cord left. See CG2012-2-23 for that appears to be the missing cord and tassel from this piece. Color(s): Brown, black and white.
