108 bead malas are hand knotted with strong cord and should not break with normal, careful use. A few tips on care:
-do not pull or play with tassel so as to preserve the integrity of the construction.
-If sandalwood beads are included in your mala, I suggest you keep the mala in the travel bag when not using so as to preserve the lovely scent.
-If a charm/charms are included in your mala, do not pull on or play with. They are attached via a jump ring and can become loose or open if handled too much.
-If you wear your mala wrapped around your wrist, in time, the cord will stretch a bit but should not break unless the mala is forced onto your wrist in a strong manner.
Bracelets are made using strong stretch cord. Due to the nature of this material it is possible, over time, to become more loose and could even break. To prolong the integrity of bracelets I suggest these tips:
-always roll bracelet onto your hand as opposed to pulling/stretching onto your hand.
-take care not to wear in the water or while partaking in high intensity activities.
-do not tug on/stretch while wearing.
If your mala should break, for any reason, please contact me and we will work out a solution depending on the circumstances and nature of the break. It is important to me that every customer have prolonged happiness with their purchase!
