Sorry, we could not translate this listing to English.
This is a beautiful Martenitsa bracelet.

The material I use is 100% DMC Cotton yarn. The bracelet will keep its colour for a long time, the material is very durable. It is no problem at all to wear it during showering or swimming.

The bracelet has one braid on each side. You can easily knot them around your wrist.

The given length of the bracelet is the total length, so including the braids. The woven part is 12 cm. It will fit everyone!

A Martenitsa is a red and white bracelet. Martenitsi are worn from Baba Marta Day (March 1) until the wearer first sees a stork, swallow, or blossoming tree (or until late March). The name of the holiday means "Grandma March" in Bulgarian and the holiday and the wearing of Martenitsi are a Bulgarian tradition related to welcoming the spring, which according to Bulgarian folklore begins in March. Inscribed in 2017 on the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
