About Sandal Wood

Sandalwood is an aromatic wood that has been used for many purposes throughout the centuries by various cultures. It can be used for incense, jewelry in the form of beaded bracelets, and also, it produces an oil with a distinctive fragrance. In fact, t is one of the most important trees in India as it is a staple of their culture.

About Mala bracelets

Beaded bracelets have many names. Wrist malas, energy or power bracelet, prayer bracelets and many other similar variants. However, they are all mostly one and the same. Originally formed as a convenient alternative to the 108 malas, wrist malas have now come into their own and become very popular in the far east regions. Power bracelets have grown to become a staple of buddhist and tibetan culture due to the belief that they carry special power and energy depending on what it is made of. The consisting gemstone, seed or bead are believed to have individual strengths and properties that aid one to live a balanced life. From protection, healing, to cleansing and creativity it is believed to bring the wearer a vast variety of benefits. It can also be used as a memento to remain balanced, humble and grounded as one traverses the unpredictable path of life.

How we directly support the locals

Since 1980 Karma and Zumki Lama have brought thousands of items made from Tibetan Refugees living in Nepal and India. As Tibetan refugees themselves, they were shocked by how much people in America loved our culture and our craftsmanship. After selling for a while, they decided to bring the wealth back home and support the struggling communities and artisans. We only buy directly from the local artisans and make sure there is no middle man to take away their hard earned money. We make sure to visit Nepal and India at least twice a year and always find new items and artists to work with. Over the years we have developed strong bonds with the artisans and always make sure to keep in touch and see that their life improves under our support. 

How we have grown

Due to your support and our continued success, we have expanded beyond just Nepal and India and now source our products ethically, from mainly Southeast Asia. (Thailand, Bali) We have expanded our collection due to the repeated requests of our customers asking for more and more culturally diverse products, and have made some new friends along the way. 

With your support

You can directly impact the local artisans by visiting either Nepal and India and experiencing the rich and vibrant culture. Many small independent businesses fail due to the changing times, and this, in turn, affects the local artisans in small villages in Southeast Asia creating a domino effect. With your support, we can continue supporting our friends from Southeast Asia and continually grow to impact their lives in a positive fashion.
