In the mountains of the Himalayas, Buddhist monks use wooden Mala beads as a tool to guide them in their meditation practice. Each bead represents a prayer of gratitude, a petition for strength or a simple reminder to slow down and dwell in the present moment. These triple wrap bracelets are inspired by these ancient Malas. Wrap three times around your wrist and remember to breathe in all of the goodness that life has to offer.

What are Krobo beads?

 

African Krobo Beads: Traditional glass beads of Ghana are often referred to as Krobo beads. These  beads are created by gathering discarded glass and transforming them into upcycled works of hand painted art. The beads are a vital source of income for the people of Ghana and reflect a spirit of hope, joy and prosperity.
