Style: Ethnic, Funky
The ribbon is made of hand dyed silk in tones of beautiful terracotta with purple and hints of green blended in. Strung onto the silk wrap are 3 old Turkoman buttons from the Middle East. The center one has three dangle beads and make a lovely jingle sound... fantastic for belly dancing or just to wear on a warm summer day.
What was your inspiration?
I felt inspired by tribal fusion belly dancing and by the clothing worn by the Kuchi tribes in the Middle East. So I wanted to create something that represented this and that would also be comfortable to wear in both everyday day to day life and for dancing. The Turkoman buttons are not only authentic tribal accessories from the Middle East but also the 3 bells that dangle from the center button make a lovely jingle sound while in movement.
