2013 — A year of manifesting at Mala Collective

2013 was a year of manifesting for us at Mala Collective.

We've always manifested our dreams — set wild intentions and watched as the universe conspired to make them come true. And boy, did the universe prove its strength.

Our beautiful Guru — Soma

We started the year at the Oscars in LA. Our founders Matt and Ashley attended the gift lounge to spread the love of our beautiful mala beads and the idea of setting intentions for a more consious life.

We also created some beautiful custom gifts this year — including a kids collection. We wanted to share the love of conscious living with little ones, so we designed mala necklaces and bracelets based on the intentions of our favourite little yogis.

2013 was a creative year for us — we also made a custom collection with our friends at the Lululemon Lab. Check out some of the pieces on our Pinterest page.

We were also very thankful to land the cover of the West Ender in our hometown of Vancouver, BC.

While we're located in Vancouver, our hearts are in Bali. So our founders Ashley and Matt travelled back to Bali to explore the island. There, we surfed, did yoga, and meditated in the ashram of the high priest of Indonesia.

Even more — Matt and Ashley were married on a beach at Soma's house — the creator of these beautiful, blessed beads. (Pictured above) In celebration, we designed a beautiful wedding collection with pearls, silver, and rudrakshas.

The tropical heat, the love, and the energy of the island had our creative juices flowing. We were wildly inspired while working with our team in our Bali office to create new offerings. It resulted in us coming home with a beautiful Chakra Collection.

Spreading the mala love, we also travelled to London to attend the Om Yoga Show. We were so grateful for a beautiful feature in the Om Yoga Magazine, and the opportunity to stretch deeply with some amazing yogis from the UK.

The day after returning home — we moved into a new office! We are so proud to have a new office so full of love, great energy, and amazing people to share these beautiful beads with. 

We wrapped up the year with another collection — the Goddess Collection. We wanted to celebrate the female deity. The power to evoke love, energy, kindness, healing, and femininity. 

Thank you for sharing this beautiful journey with us. 2013 was truly a year of manifesting and watching the universe conspire to fulfill our dreams.

Love and light to all heading into 2014 — we can't wait to see what it brings!
