Updated on January 20, 2010

What is Belly Dance Hip Scarf?

Belly Dance Hip Scarves are the accessories for belly dancing. These Scarves are also known as "Shakira Belts". After Shakira used these hip scarves at her concerts, they got more popularity by large communities.

The common shape of these belts is triangle. They are bespangled by coins and different accessories like cockleshell or sequin. These scarves are handmade and it takes 1 day to sew up one of them for a person. The labour makes these oriental accessories more valuable and unique.

The reason of using the coins or smilar accessories on these belts is making more noise at the dance performance. The noise makes people more concentrated.
