How Macedonian "Martinki" become part of UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity

Source: Vasilka Dimitrovska (HAEMUS)

The little bracelets called "Martinki" that are made out of red and white thread and comprise part of the Macedonian cultural tradition associated with the 1st of March (the beginning of spring in the Northern Hemisphere) were in 2017 listed by UNESCO as Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. This impressive group success of Macedonia, Moldova, Romania and Bulgaria, was possible on Macedonian side thanks to the efforts invested by HAEMUS, a non- for- profit organisation dedicated to scientific research and promotion of Macedonian cultural heritage. The founder and director of HAEMUS, Vasilka Dimitrovska discusses the importance of "Martinki" as a tradition transmitted since ancient times.
