Description

The ‘Crios’ is a handwoven multi coloured belt it is pronounced as ‘Kris’. ‘Crios’ is the Irish word for a belt.  Traditionally woven from wool of six different colours, the Crios often has a white border.  The men of the Aran Islands, off the west coast of Ireland, wore the crios, bound around the waist of their tweed trousers. Liz weaves the ‘CHRISTY CRIOS’  on a loom which she inherited from a property clear out in County Sligo. The owner of the shed wanted the two shaft floor loom ‘to go to a good home’. So, Liz gladly obliged and used it to perfect the design and weaving of ‘the crios’, encouraged by her friend and mentor, Kitty Joyce.

This Christy Crios is woven from Donegal Aran Tweed wool using contrasting colours of lime green, navy and red. Hand crafted to use as a belt, a guitar strap or a hand fasting braid to ‘tie the knot’.
