Sourcing of our sandalwood mala beads:
Since 2014, Blooming Lotus Jewelry has been supporting a family-owned small business in Rishikesh, India, by sourcing all of our sandalwood beads from them. In October of 2014, I met with the family in person at their shop in the heart of Rishikesh, the birthplace of yoga. Our sandalwood is sustainably sourced in Mysore, India, adhering to harvesting regulations and using fair-trade practices. It then makes its way to my supplier in Rishikesh, before heading to us here in the U.S. to be assembled into various mala designs unique to Blooming Lotus Jewelry. We are proud to know our source personally and directly support their family for the past 7 years.
