We have a range of 108 bead malas and a selection of bracelets that are designed and created in Zürich, Switzerland. Each mala is created by yogis with loving care using quality materials from around the Globe. Malas and bracelets can be made to order according to your choice of style, colour, materials and intention. Whether you're a dedicated yogi, mindfully meditating or simply enjoy the beauty of the beads we have malas to suit every occasion on and off the yoga mat.  In addition we also offer beautiful products to support you on you spiritual journey.


The founder, Rachel Sundström, has been a dedicated yogini and holistic therapist for over twenty years and draws her inspiration from yoga, meditation and the surrounding Swiss nature.  Rachel continues to share her love of yoga through teaching from her beautiful yoga studio in the heart of Herrliberg or offering Yoga Retreats in Ibiza and when she is not on the yoga mat she is tapping into her creative spirit.


"As I am a very visual person I take inspiration from things I see around me in nature, whilst traveling or wherever I am and use these ideas to create a mala intuitively. I also enjoy creating custom malas for individuals based on their needs and intentions as well as teaching others to create their own sacred mala. Personally I prefer malas that are knotted in between each bead as I find this easier during meditation. The knots symbolise the divine link between all beings in the universe strung together on one universal thread in a circular pattern. This represents the cycle of the universe, without a beginning or an end, the constant cycle of life."


Rachel and her team offer Creative Mala Workshops in Zürich, Davos, Flims, Fribourg, Geneva, Luzern and surrounding areas. Rachel also travels within Europe to offer workshops at yoga festivals as well as yoga and meditation retreats.
