MARTAKIA, COLOURFUL SPRING BRACELETS

It is surprising how many good luck charms, amulets and references to health appear in the Greek folk tradition.

Today we are featuring the white and red March bracelet called μαρτακι, which according to popular custom is worn on the wrist, ankle or in some areas on the big toe so that the wearer does not stumble. Traditionally, this bracelet would protect the wearer from the first sun and the whims of the spring season. In fact, red recalls the color of healthy cheeks while white symbolizes the purity of the complexion.
