The Sami belt makes a lovely accessory to your designer jumper, dress or tunic. If you like this belt pattern but would like it in a different colourway, please ask.

Colourful and intricately patterned bands have traditionally been woven by the Sámi on rigid heddles made of bone. These bands were used in their clothing as decoration to trim their clothing. Sami woven bands also had many functional uses such as belts, shoelaces and straps for bags. Sami band weaving is quite time consuming to weave, unlike most other types of braid weaving because each pattern thread is hand picked. This weaving method gives the ability to weave more complex pattern variations.

The Sámi handwoven belts and sashes can be custom made to match your special designer clothing.
Due to the complexity of the Sami pickup weave structure, these belts are quite time consuming to make. Please allow 3-6 weeks for completion of your hand woven belt.
All of my Sámi duodji products are made using traditional methods and materials used by my ancestors.
