Our San Pancho belt features colorful embroidery over a blue cotton background with a metal belt buckle, and is meant to be a waist belt.
The name of our San Pancho belt pays homage to Frida Kahlo's painting, La Adelita, Pancho Villa and Frida. In this painting, Frida positions herself among heroes of the Mexican Revolution, one of whom is Pancho Villa. Frida describes in her diary the meaning of the color blue as electricity, purity, love, and tenderness. La Casa Azul (The Blue House) was Frida's home as a child and in her later stages of life, and has now been dedicated as a museum to honor her legacy.

For our Frida collection, WYETH has collaborated with both the Frida Kahlo Foundation and Las Fotos Project. Based in Los Angeles, California, Las Fotos Project is a community based non-profit organization that inspires teenage girls through photography, mentorship, and self-expression. Offering year-round programming, they provides girls with access to professional cameras, quality instruction and workshops that encourage them to explore their identity, build leadership and advocacy skills, and strengthen their social and emotional well-being.
Proceeds from the sale of pieces from our Frida collection are donated directly to Las Fotos Project and the Frida Kahlo Foundation.
