Like to wear your ties a little more casual? girlwithbeads designer Rebecca Alderman started out by making little bags & things from found objects, recycled materials, plastic bags, old clothes, etc. This passion developed into a range of unique, handcrafted bags and accessories made from old clothes, suit jackets and ties. This Belt is made from vintage ties sewn together with metal buckle. £15.
