The Bonfim Ribbons come from the vibrant city of Salvador from Bahia, Brazil. Each ribbon has the sentence ‘Lembrança do Senhor do Bonfim da Bahia’, meaning: souvenir of the Lord of Bahia of good outcome.
They are used wrapped and tied on the wrist with three knots. As each knot is tied a wish is made. Wearing a Bonfim Ribbon represents your goals, wishes and dreams. The wishes are said to come true when the ribbon falls off on its own.
It’s the perfect gift, small and colorful, yet full of meaning and good energy. Check out the different Bonfim Ribbon colors and wishes below.
