The Red Thread

CAD $6.50

Red is the colour of magic in every country and is believed to protect against the evil eye.In the Balkans it protected one against witches and witchcraft. Some say that the original charms were made by midwifes, using the blood stained threads that were used to tie the umbilical cord as good luck charms.

People would tie two thin braided strings around their wrist, in anticipation of the first sign of the spring. The token may be tied on a tree to wish for good luck, and a fruitful and prosperous season.

If there is a specific matryoshka doll face you would like please leave me a note on checkout and I will do my best to make sure you get that one.

String is 7 inches long from end to end.
