A thick braided mauli band is the main tying thread of the rakhi. It is wide enough to feel like a bracelet. There is a distinct circular Ganesh head moulded in yellow metal in the centre of the rakhi. The colour of the rakhi looks beautiful as it blends from yellow to orange to red. Send this rakhi to India as it consists of all elements that are required to add meaning to the rituals of the festival. The mauli thread is a reminder of protection while the Ganesh represents auspiciousness and prosperity.
