The Mocadorá is a tradition that dates back to the 13th century.
On the 9th of October, James I reconquered Valencia and it is said that the Muslims gave fruit and vegetables from their orchards wrapped in a handkerchief (mocador) to his wife Doña Violante as a sign of peace.
In the 18th century it was forbidden to celebrate this event in the streets and as a symbol, men began to give their wives handkerchiefs with sweets representing these vegetables and the firecrackers that they could not throw (you know how much we love gunpowder around here).
Since then we celebrate all this and also Sant Dionís, which is our Valencian Saint Valentine...
So I hope you have already prepared that scarf precious for your sweetheart, be it man, woman or thing. And if it's made of silk, it's even better!
This is the Mediterráaneo model, the limited edition that I have designed this year, and that the Confectioners and Bakers Guild has presented the Mayor, the President of the Generalitat and 18 other authorities with gifts to commemorate this important day.
