Cotton tie belt, 'Field of Flowers' (Mexico)

From the Chiapas highlands in southern Mexico comes this lovely tie belt with a flower and leaf pattern in a palette of emerald and spring green, amethyst, and deep rose. Rocio Vazquez of the community of Zinacantán presents an artisan crafted tie belt made with 100% cotton. Purple and pink thread are braided into ties that permit the belt to be securely knotted.
