Martinisti are a Bulgarian rite of spring. On Baba Marta's Day - March 1st - Bulgarians exchange red and white bracelets, pins, or other items to welcome the coming of spring. At the first sign of her arrival, martinitsi are removed and hung on a budding tree, or near an animal's home to bring wishes of health, happiness, and fertility. In some parts of Bulgaria, farm animals also receive martinitsi!
Set of 5 martinitsi imported from Bulgaria. Your purchase supports Nissa's project, Bereket. Your choice of multicolour, pink, or traditional red beads.
To Wear: Place the bracelet over your friend's hand and slide the bead up to fit.
