We are a small manufacturer of Buddhist Praying chains, also called Malas. Malas are used to repeat Mantras in your head while meditating. Every Mala is made out of a total of 108 beads. We divide those beads into 4 parts of 27 beads each. Every 27th bead is a gemstone bead, working on a special chakra.
The number 108 plays a major role in Buddhism and stands for the mortal desires of mankind.
27 beads stand for 27 passions to overcome –
27 spiritual qualities to reach – 27 hazes of
the heart to overcome – 27 qualities to reach
We wanted to produce Malas that help you and look good, using the gifts of our planet without hurting it. Our Malas are 100% natural, we use wood, stones and plants to produce them. For our Malas we only use regional wood, from birk trees, which are manufactured in a small family turnery in Bad Hofgastein.
Since we decided to produce all our products 100 % animal free, we don’t use any leather strings or put any varnish or wax on our beads. We use eco cotton strings to knot our Malas.
Gemstone business usually is a really dirty business so it took us quite long to find someone who could provide us with what we wanted. We found a small family business located just outside Salzburg who works already in the 3rd generation, selling only fair-traded gemstones and knowing all of their world-wide suppliers personally.
