|A beautiful contemporary ‘Galuchat’ belt, designed with a Silver Buckle (frame and prong) with a Galuchat leather strap. The belt is embellished with Gold plated Sterling Silver Lotus flower, blooming from the buckle as well as the tip.
As a décor, the Lotus flower grows in the deep mud, far away from the sun. But, sooner or later, the Lotus reaches the light becoming the most beautiful flower ever. It thus is regarded in many different cultures as a totem of purity, enlightenment, self-regeneration, and rebirth and also adored for representing affluence, good health, divinity and eternity.
As a strap, Galuchat (leather) was the name of a royal suitcase maker in Medieval Europe, and due to his extensive work with stingray, the stingray leather is also named after him. It is renowned for its toughness and was also used by the Japanese as armor.
The piece can be worn with traditional Asian attire as well as for a formal gathering with suits. This piece took over 4 weeks to produce with as many as 3 craftsmen involved during the design and finishing.
