Sydney Tension Buckle
Handmade Fair Trade in Indonesia
3 inches by 4 inches
The Sydney and Paris Tension Buckles were designed at the specific request of Marie Barber, founder and artist behind Colors of Praise needlepoint. Marie approached JUL to design a tension buckle as an accompaniement to her amazing and inspired needlepoint hip belts.
The intention was to create a buckle that would hold the belt by tension rather than requiring that a hole be made in the needlework, thus protecting the integrity of Marie's gorgeous hand-painted canvases and the beautiful stitching of the needlepointers who work so long to realize Marie Barbers's wonderful designs in wool and silk.
