Famous Slutsk Belt from Belarus'

Slutsk belts are globally considered to be the Belarussian national relic as a unique hand-weaving type and a nation identity symbol. Skillfully made weaving masterpieces were created during the mid 18th and the first half of the 19th centuries in local factories, and Slutsk factory was the most famous of them. Sending a Slutsk belt as say diplomatic gift to a neighboring country political mogul was customary. Some of the Slutsк belts are very expensive.
