The Vutsata Belt is made of handwoven strip cloth and hand cast horse, snake and seahorse brass amulets and D-ring closure. Adjustable waist allows for wearing over a dress or slid into the belt loops of your favorite trousers. The cotton was woven on wooden looms using a tapestry technique called Tritriku in the Volta region of Ghana.
The Amulet collection is a collaboration between 100% SILK and jeweller Daniel Mawuli Quist. Lost-wax brass casting was developed by the Asante people in Ghana to make objects for gold transactions, such as weights and canisters. Like their forefathers, Ghana’s brass casters begin the process of making metal articles by sculpting in beeswax. The wax form is painted with a paste of fine charcoal and water and covered in a mold of coarse palm fibers and clay. Finally, the wax is poured out and replaced by molten brass. The finished brass piece is polished with palm nut fibers and sand over several days.

The name “100% silk” stands for our dedication to exalted textiles. Each collection is an investigation into a special cloth fashioned from traditional techniques such as hand dyeing, knitting or weaving.
