This belt is made with modern equipment, but it is fully consistent with those belts, which were produced in Belarus before. Belt length is 3 meters, the width is 30 cm It is woven with silk threads. You can compare the pattern of modern belt and pattern of ancient products - they are almost identical.

|Slutsk belt, mid-18th century|
Modern Slutsk belt was made for 1 hour. It's fast - in the past people were weaving a belt for several days. In the future, the factory will produce a belt of silver and gold threads. Earlier this belt was worth a few thousand ducats. Compare: a person could buy an estate with a house, a garden and servants - or buy one Slutsk belt.
I think that people will be able Slutsk belts will soon be not only in my country. They can be ordered online.
