Hand Made Rakhi (Photo)

A simple red and white translucent bead bracelet created by a young artist to mark the occasion of 'Rakshabandhan'. A tradition where a sister ties a sacred thread around her brother's wrist to signify their deep bond where brother vows to protect her sister from all perils.

It is interesting to note that other culutres around the world celebrate this beautiful bond. 'Children of heaven' (Bacheha-ye Aseman) is a telling movie of that sentiment - a 1997 Iranian family drama film written and directed by Majid Majidi.

A small budget movie and yet so powerful. A small hand made gift yet so precious!

Bracelets, necklaces, belts made out of paper sisal wood,  creations of Rwandan moms at Songa designs, reflect their self-reliance, and hardships. Enjoy gift giving at Songa designs, while learning about these special women.
