Schwalm Tritzer

Tritzers are roses made with silk ribbons. They are used for decorating the equipment of infants, children, and poor women. Because tritzers are small and cute, they are well suited for children’s adornment. And because they are quick and relatively inexpensive to produce, they are a good embellishment choice for low-income women.

Tritzer can be found on infants’ caps, baby christening caps, dresses for little girls, baby slings, garters, apron strings, and parade cushions.

Children’s tritzer are additionally decorated. This means, for girls 1-3 (sometimes 5) berries stuffed with peas are sewn in the center, and for boys 1 berry stuffed with a bean is sewn in the center.
