These beads are made from vintage Johar heartwood (Cassia Javanica) which has an interlocked grain, a moderately fine texture and diffuse small pores. The heartwood has a light yellowish colour, with darker brown streaks, and darkens with age. This wood is lightweight and more practical for larger beads in my experience.

This wood does not have a characteristic aroma, but we complement ours with Indonesian Oud, which should stay on the wood for some time and can be reapplied. These beads are made from upcycled wood and no new wood has been used.

All our prayer beads are made entirely by hand by a Javanese master artisan, using a traditional lathe.
