They all discover the same belt.
How to explain this shared “got to have it!” moment? The longed-for Jenny Krauss belts are beautiful, hand-crafted and colorful. An artisan labors over each one for two days. The women use a curly woolen Boucle yarn that creates a nubby texture on the finished product. The result is a wearable work of art that’s feminine and fun. And they’ve only been available in the United States for a few months, so they have a fresh look that’s perfect for a new season.
Jenny, an art school grad and sculptor, works with a Woman’s Fair Trade Group in Peru to create the belts. The artisans are often victims of domestic violence. Sewing allows them to work while caring for their children. Their financial independence makes their lives safer.
Jenny Krauss belts are just the thing to add zip to your jeans and a T-shirt this spring. Of course, helping out women in need is always in fashion.
