PRODUCT DESCRIPTION - WIDE BELT FAJA

These statement-making wide belts are the perfect accent piece to any day-time or evening activity! Known as a faja in Spanish, these fajas are part of local typical dress, but will make a statement as a highly crafted, boho look featuring age old Quechua designs such as sallaqocha (calm lake)!

Paired with your favorite dress or skirt-top combo, these wide faja belts are best worn around the high waist, adjusted to size with two finely woven ties.

Our Wide Faja Belt comes in two designs:

Multicolour Gray, featuring designs of trigo (grains) and naturally dyed colors, such as yellow (dyed with q'olle flowers) and green (dyed with ch'illca leaves)

Multicolour Turquoise, featuring designs of sallaqocha (calm lake) and naturally dyed colors, such as turquoise (dyed with the kinsa kuchu plant)

Size: Approximately 7 cm x 76 cm

WHO MADE THIS WIDE FAJA BELT?

Tucked away in the lush foothills of the Sacred Valley of Cusco, widely known as the historic playground of the Incan royals, the Munay Urpi (meaning beautiful dove in Quechua) cooperative of Huaran is reached by a single road stretching between the townships of Urubamba and Calca. Surrounded by rich farmland, Huaran is actually composed of 5 smaller villages – Cancha Cancha, Ch’uro, Sillacancha, Taqllapata, and Arin - with members coming from as far as 1.5 hours away to participate in the cooperative. In addition to increased involvement in the textile market, local families largely keep animals such as cows and sheep for their own food supplies and their abundant crops of white corn, lettuce, strawberries, and roses fill farmers' market stalls year round.
