🌺These are three of the most feminine mittens that were historically knitted by, for or with mothers... Today, we can only speculate about their original purpose and story, but we are thankful to all the mothers that passed down these ancient crafts to later generations. Happy mothers day! πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§β€πŸ‘§β€οΈπŸŒΊ

🌲 What do you think happened to all the mittens that the bride left all over the living rooms, on the well, in the stable and in the barn? The mother-in-law gathered them all up and kept them πŸ™ƒπŸŒ²

🌲Did you know, that the most of the mittens that girls have knitted trough their lives traditionally were given away on their wedding day? They were given as presents to the new family, guests, musicians. A pair of mittens was also left in every room of the new house of the bride, as well as in every other building in her homestead. These offerings were believed to bring wealth to the household. Giving mittens also nowadays is a deep and strong Latvian tradition. 🌲

🌸🌸Spring is almost here, so what about knitting? Is that a craft only for dark autumn evenings and winter? Not at all! Historically, girls started to knit at the age of seven, and did that trough out all the seasons. Girls would take their knitting baskets with them to fields and knit while taking care of the cattle. The aspiration was to have several hundred pairs completed by the time of their weddings. 🌸🌸

🌸This mitten pattern comes from Nīca in Southwest Latvia. Flower patterns are quite characteristic of Kurzeme region. Recently at Latvian Cultural festival in The Netherlands, we had a great opourtunity to talk to Latvian folklore expert Austris Grasis, and he offered an interesting possible explanation of this flower pattern. It is possible that the creator of this pattern was inspired by baroque wood carving in a local church. In Nīca, folk traditions and Christianity were intertwined in everyday life and these mittens could be an example for that unique cultural phenomenon.🌸

🌲🌲🌲 In these mittens we see The Upward Triangle - a sign of Dievs, the main deity in Latvian mythology. This sign used to symbolize the sky (or roof of the world), and masculine strength. This sign is thought to attract divine and creative energy to the wearer. The downward triangle is another of Māra’s signs. Māra is the deity of all the material world and defender of women. This sign represents a bond with earth, natural power, and feminine energy. It protects and blesses the physical world.🌲🌲🌲
