martiso 1er mars rituels et traditions de transylvanie

Red symbol of winter. White symbol of Spring.
In the first days of Spring, the earth opens up to the sun. She leaves behind her coat of wind, rain and cold to dress in embroidery. Thus it gives way to the traditional feast of the Martisor.
What is a Martisor? It is a kind of talisman that is pinned to the chest, usually worn for eight days, and made of a red thread and a white thread braided together.

While in the villages of Transylvania, the mărțișor is hung in different places to ward off evil spirits, a Romanian custom is that girls and women receive on this day from men, a lot of “màrtisor” who are the symbol of spring. This will be kept throughout the month of March.

Spring is fast approaching, the trees are budding, it’s time to offer the martisors. There is something for all tastes: brooches, bracelets, clubs, horseshoes or hearts. We offer you a wide choice, guaranteeing happiness and and success.
