About Knotted Malas- If you have a “knotted japa mala” (knots after each bead)that you’d like restrung, we can do so by removing each knotted bead and “upgrading” to our break resistant “Soft Flex” bead cord. We do have to use a tassel with “Soft Flex”, to properly fasten the finishing knot for extended use. There will no longer be knots after each bead so you can better use it for counting. We cannot re-knot your Japa Mala. As professional “mala makers” recommend the use of “Soft Flex” rather than knotting, as this lasts much longer and does not stretch and fray. If you send us a knotted mala to restring, please make a double offering of labor.
