AFRICAN DANCE BELTS:
In the African tradition, women are encouraged to accentuate and celebrate their curves by creating waist adornments.
These belts are worn during African dance performances and are handcrafted. The process to create a belt takes several hours and is typically completed in multiple sessions.
Creating one of these belts, specifically one with names require an extraordinary amount of time and patience.
At Balebe, we know that it all starts with one little bead! Each bead must be placed in a specific order to create the overall pattern. However, this group project is the perfect way to bond and explore creativity!
