As we get close to the much-awaited occasion that celebrates the bitter-sweet love between siblings, buying a rakhi is a small task to check off your to-do list. Keeping a traditional yet contemporary feel while picking the rakhi for your brother and cousins can get easier with the following options. Tapping into the traditional roots with meenakari motifs, this year you can choose subtle yet ethnic rakhis that deserve a spot on your brother’s wrist –
Traditional Colours –
Red, green, yellow and gold are the perfect ethnic colours for a traditional Indian rakhi. These hues have been associated with festivals for years. From a vibrant vermilion to a darker maroon, or an emerald green to a royal green, there are six options available to choose from.
Contemporary Colours –
Mint green and peach have taken down the internet as contemporary colours that look super elegant in traditional wear. Likewise, even the rakhis with these colours are something that can be opted for by people who want to try fresh and experimental hues.
All rakhis have a meenakari detailing in a round and diamond pendant in the middle. Fine threads of vibrant colours are used in different braids along the length of the rakhi.
