Brazilian Wish Bracelets

Large arrow left

A 200-year-old Bahian tradition, fitas, or bonfim ribbons, are said to bring good luck. 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. Wrap the bracelet around your wrist and tie three knots, making a wish with each knot. When the bracelet eventually falls off, it is believed that your three wishes will come true.
