The vast majority of our metal components are made in the USA by businesses that practice environmentally conscious work ethics and safety.

We utilize high-quality materials in our products, including semi-precious gemstones, natural gemstones, genuine wood or seed beads, sterling silver, silver-plated metal, gold-plated metal, brass, copper, and American made lead-free pewter.

Occasionally glass or porcelain decorative pieces are used in some items, this information is indicated in the product description.

Certain Agate crystals, Tibetan Dzi Beads, and Turquoise Howlite undergo dyeing or heating processes to enhance their artistic appearance. Additionally, Goldstone is a man-made stone composed of Copper and Crystal.

We DO NOT use fake beads made of acrylic, plastic, resin, etc.

Steps are taken during the manufacture of each item to ensure that beads and other materials are not broken or damaged.

Knotted malas are crafted with durable cord that is fray-resistant and can withstand 40 lbs of pressure.

Wired malas are made with professional-grade jewelry wire, the most expensive and the best in the industry is used to string our mala beads. You may wonder how a mala strung on this wire may feel, the drape is very soft and flexible similar to any standard necklace you may wear, it is also kink resistant and can withstand 45 lbs. of pressure.

Each full-size wire mala is given just the right amount of “give” to allow the beads to be moved for counting or lightly wrapped around the wrist.

Stretchy malas or bracelets are made with a strong latex-free cord that maintains its stretchiness for years.
