Description The wearing of a red string as a type of talisman is commonly associated with Kabbalist customs concerning misfortune in general and the “Evil Eye” in particular. According to tradition, tying a red string around one’s wrist allows the wearer to be protected, thereby protecting them from poverty, disease, accidents, or other such misfortunes which might otherwise befall them. In Yiddish, this red string is called a “roite bindele.” Tradition teaches us that it was a red string, wound seven times around the Tomb of Rachel herself, which endowed it with mystical powers, a tale that fits right in with the Kabbalist view. Add to that the fact that this particular bracelet is aesthetically-crafted to merge the styles of ancient Kabbalist tradition with modern fashion, and you have the perfect gift for everything from birthdays to Bat Mitzvahs and beyond.
