The Rose Rakhi combo comes with a delicately handcrafted plantable rakhi, cutesy pouches of kumkum and chawal and a seed paper greeting card. These rakhis are made from wood-free upcycled cotton scrap plantable paper with seeds of vegetables and wildflowers embedded in them.
Eco-friendly, plantable and 100% biodegradable, the blooms are tied to handspun cotton thread braided together.
This simple plantable seed paper Rosa rakhi is inspired by the ideals of the beautiful Rose. Used for hundreds of years to convey messages without words, they also represent confidentiality. In fact, the Latin expression "sub rosa" (literally, "under the rose") means something told in secret, and in ancient Rome, a wild rose was placed on the door to a room where confidential matters were being discussed.
And we all know that the code language between siblings is no joke. We guard our sib’s secrets with all our hearts and souls, (unless of course there is the prospect of a bigger piece of chocolate, and then everything goes for a toss). Here's to celebrating the secrets and stories, ‘sub rosa’.
