What is the traditional mitten ritual for birth and the ritual for death? How does the mitten carry the blessing of the Gods and Goddesses? What is the structure of the “charm” of each mitten and when does it become complete?
The still sacred nature of the Latvian mitten is grounded in cultural cosmology and women’s magic making each mitten a profound amulet.
