March bracelet, red and white wrap bracelet, spring bracelet. Greek traditional bracelet.
A modern version of the traditional March bracelet, known as "Martis" or "Martaki" in Greece.
You not have to be a Greek to wear a "Martaki", you can wear it after March stuck with other bracelets.
According to the spring tradition of “Marti” or “Martia,” adults and children wear a small bracelet made of red and white thread from March 1st till the 31st. The bracelet was said to protect from diseases and the rays of the sun, which are supposed to be very strong during March.
At the end of the month, the bracelet is placed on rose buses after they’ve seen the first swallow, so it can pick it up and build its nest.
