Exceptionally Durable Thread ~ For years we have yearned to offer fine stone tasbihs to the world. However, we have never felt comfortable doing so as there seemed to be no thread durable enough to withstand the abrasion of the stone's inner surface. Even Kevlar, one of the world's strongest materials did not meet our standards (even though it is superb for woods, and other organic materials). Recently we have had a breakthrough and sourced a thread that went above and beyond all expectations. It is finally time for us to share our love of stone tasbih with the world. Bismillah.

Natural Lapis Lazuli Gemstones~ Lapis Lazuli is considered one of the earliest used gemstones in history. Since 7000 B.C. civilizations have prized the intense blue color of this gorgeous manifestation of beauty and majesty.
Ethically Sourced Camel Ivory ~ Traditionally Muslim artisans and craftsmen have found great meaning in using organic materials such as camel ivory. You see, they believed that the taking of the soul of an animal is a great sacrifice. This sacrifice is something they believed to be permitted by God, and that it came with great responsibility. Of these responsibilities is the humane treatment of the animal, and most notably striving to not waste anything from the animal so as not to take its life in vain. Just as the meat is consumed and the leather is tanned, the Ivory (the purest portions of its bone) of the camel is used to create great works of devotional art.
