History of Brazilian Wish Bracelets - Bahia Bands

Bahia Bands~ Also known as Brazilian Wish Bracelets, they are a 200 year-old tradition from Brazil. These ribbons of Bonfim are said to bring good luck to those who adhere to the tradition. Nowadays, the Bahia Bands are worn as a fashion accessory as well as a good luck charm. The wish ribbon is tied around the wrist with 3 knots. A wish is made for each of the 3 knots tied. Once the Brazilian Wish Bracelet falls off the wrist on its own, it is believed the 3 wishes will come true.
The writing on the ribbon says ”Lembrança do Senhor do Bonfim da Bahia”, or in remembrance of the savior of Bahia, or Souvenir from the God of Bahia.

*Make Sure NOT to cut them OFF – As it becomes bad luck!
OR Decorate your Home by hanging the beautiful color Bahia Bands on a wreath on a special spot on your Wall in your Home.
