Please note:  

Colours may vary slightly depending on your computer monitor screen and brightness.  

Mala kits are designed and curated with the stock we have on hand.  Because of this, the designs offered will continually change.  We make kits in small batches.  So if you find a design and colour combination you really love, be sure to purchase it in good time to ensure you get the one you want.  

We cannot make any substitutions or changes to the kits. 

Length of your finished mala may be slightly different from the estimate given.  It all depends on which beads you decide to use in your design and also the length and size of your knots.
