Materials, Repairs and Restringing
My mala beads are made from genuine stones. For the most part of items I use linen, which is natural, strong material. I personally buy it from manufacturer in Latvia (EU). There are some items made with flexible nylon cord string. Materials used are shown for each item under description.
For items which are made with linen, I do special finish – four knots and secured with super strong glue. Although linen as natural material may stretch a bit, this allows to have mala beads stay in defined position.
All items are available immediately and dispatched within 3 business days unless it is marked as “out of stock” item. Most of my items are unique designed in single copy. I do not repair or restring any item unless there is special agreement with customer. In such case customer pays for shipping rates on both directions.
