The yellow-red colored thread, the traditional rakhi is the much simpler form of raksha bandhan, which we know by its other names ‘Kalwava’, ‘dori’ or Mauli rakhi.
In Hindu mythology Mauli threads are said to be the most sacred threads in the most divine colors red and yellow. Such rakhis are often sent to elders who have faith in simplicity. In every Hindu ritual tying mouli thread is sacred and on the occasion of Raksha Bandhan using mouli threads shows their traditional religious side.
Sending one rakhi to a brother is considered somewhat inauspicious in Hindu mythology, hence some sisters pair the main rakhi with sacred mauli thread.
Because of the traditional essence, and great demand, these days, mauli rakhis have gone through a tremendous change in terms of aesthetic appeal as well as styles. Now they come decked with zari, beads, trinkets, kindans, sequins, and other embellishments. Though the aesthetic appeal is not get outshines by the embellishments, but the rakhi looks more appealing and elegant.
