Abacus Mala

For the yogi and mediators in your life. 
The mala, an ancient meditation tool,  can be used to count and follow the breath, chants or mantras. It helps us quiet the mental chatter, focus and bring attention to our minds and have a keen appreciation for all that is. Like anything, with repeated use it takes on the memory of one’s intention, thus becoming sacred. 

Companion Bangles

With quotes like "Only through the heart can you touch the sky~ Rumi" engraved on the bangles, Mindful Necessities Companion Bangles let your loved ones be reminded all day of the intentions they would like to keep in their hearts.

Giving gifts with thought and love, is a meditation on the person, what would bring them a feeling of being seen and appreciated.

Ethical Fashion & Why We Should Care.

November 06, 2019

Ethical fashion focuses on the social and environmental impacts of the production process.   

"Traditional fashion has become a sore spot on our cultural evolution, through it’s monoculture of style, its whirlwind collections of trends that date styles in a couple of weeks (fast fashion), and creating excessive waste. The very production processes of fast fashion is appalling in its social and environmental effects. " Techcrunch

I would rather have each piece of clothing I wear have meaning, a story, a unique quality, that weave throughout seasons and time without being dated by trendiness.
