Ashley Wray is the founder and CEO of Mala Collective. The company works with artisans in Asia (Ranging from Bali, India and Nepal) to create products supporting a mindfulness and meditation practice.
Merging both authentic practices and beautiful pieces, Mala Collective wants to inspire you to live your mindfulness practice at home and throughout the day. Ashley designs the pieces, such as mala beads, crystal kits and meditation cushions, by merging tradition and modern-day aesthetic.
Since starting Mala Collective in 2011, Ashley has taught meditation across North America, taken meditation trainings globally (LA, NY, India, Bali, etc.) and has worked to make meditation and mindfulness more accessible and fun.
The cushions and crystals are meant to inspire you to take a moment to breathe. The mala beads are tools you can use in your practice, but also beautiful beads you can wear throughout your day to remind you of intention.
Mala Collective has worked with brand partners from Lululemon to Anthropologie, and has been featured in YGQ, British Vogue, Yoga Journal, Goop, Well + Good and Poosh.
