It is believed that this art was invented during the Mughal period. Zari rakhis retain that royal look and thus your brother would feel no less than a king due to the glitter and glamor of this rakhi.
Sandalwood Rakhi: You may call it a traditional rakhi due to the inclusion of sandalwood. These amazing rakhis are made by infusing sandalwood pieces in several pretty forms. The dial of the rakhi may look like small animals, flowers or some idols made up of sandalwood. But mostly sandalwood beads are used to give that Indian look to the Rakhis. Apart from that the sweet and fascinating smell of sandalwood adds that excitement to these rakhis.
