Maxey Catalog Number
Belt, loosely woven of cotton? The threads are black, yellow, white, green, brown and orange, woven in alternating 5.5 cm stripes set apart by 0.5 cm stripes. Within the two wider sets of stripes is a zigzag pattern and the largest stripes additionally have four lines inside the "V's". The edges are fringed; this could be intentional or the result of fraying. Accession File states: "Belt of Cloth. When folded diagonally, it is bound around the outside of dress, zouboon, or coat and the ends are tucked in. In it the native carries his purse, tobacco, knife, and lunch, and sometimes tucks his hands into its folds to keep them warm. In fact, it is his 'Pocket.'"
