The bases for these belts are made from the decorative edges of Kuchi dress sleeves.  These may be embellished with any number of decorative elements including coins, buttons, beadwork, medallions, poms and more.  Afghan beadwork is some of the finest in the world, often with intricate mathematical patterns.  (Studies have been done on the mathematics of Kuchi beadwork - ask me about it!)  Please be aware that these pieces have been used and reused, often many times, and will show wear in places.  If necessary, beadwork can often be repaired simply by running a bit of beading floss through the beads and knotting it securely.
