We love making people feel great. And there’s nothing better than the feeling of helping others.
It’s ingrained in our every step — from the mala bead jewelry being handmade in Bali, to you purchasing the rudraksha bead jewelry from your favourite store.
Our families in Bali
We're so proud to work with local artisans in creating our beautiful mala beads in Bali.
Each and every mala necklace is hand knotted with love and then blessed by a priest before leaving the island.
The jobs we provide helps artisans provide for their families, gives them the ability to work from home with their children, and also empowers them in their mission to spread peace.
Our silver jewelry is made with the same love and care by the same artisans — who handcarved our sanskrit mantras with love and intention.
Our candles are also all handmade, poured, and painted in Bali. Our artisans work with forest honey hunters to support sustainable bee keeping.
Working in India
Our beautiful blanket shawls are made in India by a team that believes in sustainability. They provide numerous jobs, ensure their facility gives back to the environment by recycling water — a forward thinking program in India.
Giving Back to organizations
We are so proud to support local initiatives and organizations in the United States and Canada.
An organization that is near and dear to our hearts is Opportunity International. They work with entrepreneurs in the developing world by providing micro-loans for them to follow their dreams. We love that 93% of those loans are given to women. The organization is educating, empowering and uplifting those in a world where opportunity isn't always available.
In April 2013, team Mala Collective was proud to Live Below the Line, eating on $1.75 a day to raise awareness around extreme poverty. We ate on this amount for five days, gaining more insight and mindfulness around the limited resources that those around the world live with.
We were proud to donate 10% of sales during the challenge week to Opportunity International.
Mala Collective is also conscious in donating to and attending events where we can give back.
We donate to organizations like Karma Teachers, who offer free yoga to those on Vancouver’s Downtown East Side to promote the act of selfless giving, and the Big Brothers and Big Sisters organization, which offers mentoring to youth.
We also love sharing the goals of inspiring organizations like Girlvana – which is working to promote female empowerment and consciousness in young women through yoga, meditation and a healthy lifestyle.
It makes us feel pretty great. And we think you should experience the love, too!
