While each of our malas is carefully handcrafted using only the highest-quality materials, it’s natural for a mala to break at some point.
In fact, when a mala does break, it’s something to be celebrated as a new beginning, rather than an unfortunate end. If or when your mala breaks, it’s a symbol that you’ve fulfilled the intention you set for your mala and that it’s time to set another intention with a new mala.


A broken mala is meant to symbolize a broken cycle, i.e. that you no longer ‘need’ that mala anymore. It’s a sign to bring new intentions into your life as your current ones no longer serve you. We like to honor the release of an intention and help you through the transition. At Mala Collective, we are committed to sending your broken mala back to Bali once to be re-strung and re-blessed if you find the mala has broken before you’re ready to let go of its intention.

While a broken mala can be saddening, it’s also a beautiful opportunity to reflect and ask yourself what new intention you’re looking for, and what you would like to manifest. Maybe it’s time to send your love in a new direction and have faith that it will take you to a bigger and better place?

Regardless of what your mala looks like, these culturally rich symbols are a beautiful way to add intention and mindfulness into your life. Breathe and savor this journey—it’s going to be a gorgeous ride.
