Hours and Hours of Back Strap Looming

We're off tomorrow to see a special customer,
this calls for looking for all the nicest bits to show at the "Show and Tell" and enjoy the moment with others who appreciate a fine textile!

I got stuck on these two hand woven belts, from Guatemala, traditionally made with Indigo bases and warp threads of colour much like a pinstripe then embroidered over the top with the most amazing myriad of colour and design similar but different, same town different women.  Each one completely and uniquely different.
