Why does the Torah not inform us here what the belt was made of?


Ramban (39:29): The fact that the Torah describes the belt as "Ma'aseh Rokeim" indicates that it was made of the same materials as the screen of the Ohel Mo'ed, where the Torah uses the same expression, 1 and specifically writes that it was made of Techeiles, Argaman, Tola'as Shani and Sheish Moshzar. 2


See 26:36.


See 39:29, where the Torah does list the materials that comprised the Avneit.
