At Mala and Mantra, giving back is at the core of what we do. That’s why we’ve partnered with the Upskills+ Foundation for our first Fair Sustainable Fashion Collection. This nonprofit organization works with artisans in the Filipino community of Tondo—who live near the Smokey Mountain Dump Site—to make beautiful jewelry + other accessories out of recycled trash.
Our Fair Sustainable Fashion Collection features one-of-a-kind recycled paper beads made by Upskills+ artisans, which are used by our fair trade cooperative to handcraft mindful mala jewelry. We hope you enjoy this eco-friendly collection and feel good knowing that your purchase has made an impact on the lives of others.
