These organic mala beads are a great way for you to be mindful of the environment while you meditate. Each individually knotted mala contains 108 beads carved from Tagua nut, a beautiful, naturally occurring alternative to elephant ivory. The smooth texture feels great in your hands and the striking natural colors make these items a lovely addition to your meditative practice. Beads measure 9-10 mm approx.
Handmade by local artisans in Ecuador. No two items are alike and Tagua beads may vary in size and appearance. Beads may also have organic imperfections such as scratches and uneven surfaces. This item is not waterproof!
Material: Tagua, also known as “Vegetable Ivory” or “Green Ivory” is a type of hard nut found in the fruit pods of the Tagua palm tree. Tagua has the same appearance, density, and feel of animal ivory without doing any harm to any animal or the rainforests where it is gathered.
