I absolutely love the simplicity and organic nature of this mala! I have always preferred a clean and unornamented design and this mala is exactly what I have been looking for since I began wearing a wrist mala. The smaller size of the 8mm bead allows room for 27 beads on the chord and the Raktu seeds look great on your wrist. Also, the red string used with these is a cool detail. This mala is also made using the stretchy cord. If you haven't tried the stretchy cord yet, make sure to try it. You will love how easy it is to put on and take off.
