> Tribal Textiles > Belt Bases

Our tribal belt bases are the perfect beginning to a fabulous costume. Any of the textile items items in this category will work. Keep in mind that often tibal textile pieces may need to be added to another, stronger base before wearing for performance or practice so that less stress is placed on a vintage piece allowing for longer wear.

Our belt bases are wonderful old tribal textile items that have been worn and used in previous lives.  Please be aware that these pieces should be attached to a strong, new belt base and most often should NOT be used alone.  Dance costuming must endure heavy stress and must be sturdy enough to withstand it.  If you have questions, please feel free to contact us at info@redcamel.net.

Tribal textiles are collected from many different areas of the world and often have been used and reused many times.  Because fabric items can become worn after a relatively short period of time, repairs often show where the original maker or owner tried to keep the item in good condition.  These pieces may be thin in places, frayed, worn, discolored or have other evident wear.  Beadwork may be frayed or coming loose in places.  Please check all photos carefully for condition and be aware that this wear is a part of the cultural nature of these items and should be viewed as part of its charm and allure instead of a flaw.
