Shaped when still green, or by heating the bark, the strip is long enough to go round the waist two or three times.Once secured, it often supports a netted apron. Resembling a rigid corset, it is nonetheless said to be easy to wear because of its light weight. COMES ON A STAND This Bark belt shows age, some discoloration, but in good condition.
