As a gemologist graduated from the National Institute of Gemmology of Paris, all our stones are appraised and certified.
As Malakara, we make all our malas ourselves with scrupulous respect for tradition.
We assemble our malas on a traditional cord, a braid of 5 threads of the 5 colors of the 5 meditation Buddhas.

The mala, trengwa, in Tibetan is the buddhist's rosary, the object from which the monk (or even the lay practitioner) almost never separates, holding it in his hand or wrapped around the wrist.
The mala is first of all a utilitarian onjet: it serves as a tactile support for the recitation of mantras, at the same time as it is used to count them if one has set to repeat a defined number.
The mala is composed of 108 strung pearls, which justifies its name, since it simply means "garland" (of pearls). The different components each contain a symbolic meaning specify: The large pearl (or Buddha's head) that closes the loop represents the knowledge of emptiness. The small cone that surmounts it is the mark of emptiness itself.
Buddha having attained enlightenment under a sacred fig tree, pipal seeds are the most traditional material for making malas. These seeds patinate and take on a beautiful shine over time called "porcelain layer". Our seeds come from Hainan Island known for growing and drying the best quality in the world. Be careful many sites and specialized stores name these seeds as lotus seeds by mistake.
