The guide to our Chaguar belts: Where traditions meet modern style

woven belts

Crafted using ancient techniques by indigenous artisans, Chaguar belts are not just beautiful accessories; they also represent a rich cultural heritage. Made from the fibres of the Chaguar plant, these belts are known for their durability and intricate craftsmanship.


History and significance of Chaguar belts

The Chaguar plant is a native of South America, and its fibres have been used for thousands of years to create textiles. The plant is particularly abundant in the Gran Chaco region. Indigenous communities in the area have been using Chaguar fibres to create various items, including belts, bags and baskets.

The fibres are extracted from the leaves of the Chaguar plant, cleaned, and spun into thread. The thread is then woven into intricate patterns and design.

The man in the community will add a hand-crafted Palo Santo buckle, to get the final product; resulting in a beautiful and durable belt.
