This Mexican piteado belt is meticulously hand crafted by craftsmen skilled in embroidering fiber into leather.  These sorts of belts are popular in the Mexican Charro culture. The most highly prized of these belts are embroidered with natural fibers from the maguey (agave) plants, which often comes from Oaxaca. This particular belt is embroidered with cotton (the only in the series not woven with maguey) but the exquisite leather work, design and color meant we couldn't pass it up. I don't think I need to tell you how cool these belts are.
