Embroidered Faja Purse Strap- Pink Floral
This strap is a vintage hand embroidered belt called a “faja”. It would be worn by a Mayan woman as part of her indigenous dress. It is hand embroidered in colorful threads and they are as charming as they are unique; each is truly one-of-a-kind. We scour markets looking for the “raw” faja and then work with a master artisan to repurpose the faja so it can be enjoyed as a statement piece on your handbag.
