Returns or exchanges are accepted on non-custom items within the first 7 days of receipt if you are for any reason unhappy with what you have received. Please return the item in the exact condition in which it was received for a full refund or exchange. We will refund minus shipping fees. Unfortunately, custom items are not refundable.
The nature of a natural fiber mala is that it can break eventually. Some people take a broken mala as a sign that we have accomplished what we needed with that particular mala. Some see it as good luck, others as a sign of a well-loved set of prayer beads. If your mala breaks within the first 60 days after shipment, we will restring it for free. Please contact us via Etsy convo system if you would like to send your mala back for a restringing. After 60 days, we will restring your mala for a $30 fee, which includes return first class shipping.
