‘Babini kuki’ translates into ‘Granny’s knitting needles’.
It symbolizes the legends and traditions of a nation with over 1300 years of history.
Hand knitting and crochet are ancient arts handed down through the generations. Women passed the skills on to their daughters and granddaughters in order to preserve tradition. Bulgarian women are gifted with richness of soul and sense of harmony and beauty. They put all their imagination and vision into creating intricate traditional national dress, implementing a wealth of colour.
Nowadays, it would be nearly impossible to find even one Bulgarian family where this traditional art - hand knitting - hasn’t been preserved.
Now some of this womens designer clothes reminds me of the Ponchos, originated in Mexico.
And Here's a daring sassy type of Poncho
