Rakhi Threads

The festival of Rakhi is considered one of the most significant occasion in India. On this auspicious day sisters tie a fragile thread on the right wrist of their brother and seek blessings for his well-being from the almighty. In return brothers take a pledge to protect their sisters from all evils. This pious Rakhi thread binds brothers and sisters into a unifying bond of affection and care for each other. The way of celebrating the joyous festival of Raksha Bandhan has undergone a sea change with the changing times.
In the ancient times the Rakhi threads used to have simple traditional looks. In the modern times designers of Rakhi make more attractive, finely embellished threads using various artistic patterns. The use of finest quality soft cloth, shimmering beads, stones and zari is very common now-a-days to create Rakhi threads. On the occasion of Rakhi festival there is a host of variety when it comes to threads on Raksha Bandhan, like zari zardosi rakhi, resham dhaga rakhi, satin ribbon rakhi, mouli rakhi, floral thread rakhi, ram rakhi, beaded rakhi, sandalwod rakhi, etc.

Earlier Rakhi Threads would be a simple dora or kalawah but today these are prepared in extremely ornate designs. The centre of the thread is decorated with colourful beads, small plastic flowers, sequins, auspicious symbols of Swastik, Om and small images of God. The thread of Rakhi too has undergone fabulous transformation and is prepared artistically with resham and zari work. While most Rakhi Threads are simple yet aesthetic in appearance some may be ostentatious.

Thread Rakhis are considered appropriate for grown-ups and elderly brothers because of their comfortable and simple design. Rakhi Threads are comparatively lighter in weight and are very much preferred by sisters who need to send Rakhi to brother through post or courier.
