Why are our Subhas unique?

While tradition offers many traits, modernity has opened a world of possibilities. Making things more beautiful in a better way. Our Subhas are not the exception. Our beads are made of PLA, the renowned material named “bioplastic.” Non-toxic, renewable, PLA is used in the fabrication of airplanes, medical devices, and now, it has interesting applications in 3D printing –such as our Subhas.

We manufacture our Subhas utilizing top-of-the-art 3D printing with 100% sustainable processes. This eco-friendly technology results in splendid Subhas that come in unique colors –ones not found in any other Subha in the world. They also come in different sizes and bonded by a pure and soft thread. The 33 beads are combined using cotton or silk by hand. We meticulously customize our beads to suit different tastes and preferences.

Among the many shades available are brown, black, pearl white, golden yellow, navy blue, and others. The beads have a unique texture and a degree of thickness that enhances the experience and the looks.
