Belts in Russia were an integral part of the traditional costume. Belts performed several
functions simultaneously: practical, protective, symbolic, magic and esthetic. Belts in traditional
cultures represented an important detail of men’s, women’s and kids’ garments. Accessories
necessary in everyday life were fastened to belts, such as: women’s keys, combs, purses; men’s
arms, pipes, tobacco pouches. Beyond their purely utilitarian function, belts held symbolical
significance. Tied round a person’s body, the belt represented a self-contained circle that,
according to folk beliefs, barred a way to evil spirits and protected from malefice.
