Papua New Guinea Tree Bark Belt

$480.00 $640.00

This is a wonderful Wide Vintage Bark Belt from the Papua New Guinea Peoples of the Papuan Gulf where Bark Belts are part of the men's traditional dress. Their is no pattern on this belt, only a woven fiber belt/tie to secure it. Shaped when still green, or by heating the bark, the strip is long enough to go round the waist two or three times. Once secured, it often supports a netted apron. Resembling a rigid corset, it is nonetheless said to be easy to wear because of its light weight.
