Taylor Swift is about to perform her first concert in Mexico City, and if you’re a fan, you’ve probably already started making friendship bracelets.
The concept of friendship bracelets is not entirely new; it has been around for a while. These types of items usually represent the bond of friendship between two people who wear the same bracelet.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the practice of making “friendship bracelets” and exchanging them at Taylor Swift concerts was started by one of the lyrics in one of her songs on the Midnights album, “You’re On Your Kid.”
The raw materials used to make these bracelets are sold at haberdashery shops such as Fantasies Miguel, which sells a wide variety of colors and parts for making Swift Tale bracelets.
Who is the owner of Fantasies, Miguel?
It all started when, in 1965, Miguel Litchi and his wife sold necklaces and medals in the historical center of CDMX.
They later expanded their range to include accessories and fashion jewelry for arts and crafts. There are currently 350 branches in the country and materials for making everything from christening souvenirs to Christmas and Halloween decorations.
They are currently considered experts in materials for jewelry, floral art, haberdashery, and decoration. Throughout its history, it has faced two major challenges: the 1985 earthquake and the 1995 economic crisis. The latter bankrupted them, and it took them 10 years to recover.
Fantasies Miguel even reveals on their website that they have everything they need to make their friendship bracelet, a nod to Taylor Swift.
