What is a Mandala Throw?

A Mandala Throw is a Queen sized sheet of 100% cotton material embellished with Indian screen printing techniques. With each design representing it's own uniqueness.

What can they be used for? 

This is totally up to you and your imagination! Mandala throws can be used to bring warmth to any space by being used as wall hanging, bed spread, beach blanket, table cloth or vehicle interior... Feel free to get creative and show us your Mandala Throw magic via Instagram #thegatherersgrove

How are they made / Where do they come from?

These throws are completely handcrafted in the Motherland India! After spending time in India with the families behind the creation of these Mandala Throws and the practice they used of traditional Indian screen printing techniques in order to create eye-catching designs. We felt it was important to build a creative rapport with the authentic masters of their craft.

- 100% cotton

- Vegetable dyes 

- Unique natural imperfections (No two designs are the same)

Washing Instructions?

As these throws are made in an ethical environment using natural vegetable colours, please carefully follow their care instructions as no refunds or exchanges are issued for washed items.

  • Wash separately
  • Hand-wash in cold water
  • We recommend not using any bleaches or detergents, instead use a small amount of washing powder (Less than half a scoop) or iodized salt (To lock in the vibrant colours) 
  • Avoid prolonged soaking
  • Avoid tumble drying

Why does my throw have small imperfections?

Each Mandala Throw has unique imperfections due to the handcrafted nature of which they were made.

Imperfections may include; Slight dye markings, spots and altered lines. we feel each of these markings add to the character and handmade charm of each throw. No two throws will be precisely the same, but will be wholeheartedly your own!

Are all your pieces Sterling Silver?

Yes, all the items we sell on the website are 9.25 sterling silver!

What the difference between Silver Plated and Sterling Silver?

Silver Plated jewellery is a cheaper base metal that has been coated in a thin layer of Silver. Due to the coating only being a thin layer, the Silver Plated pieces are prone to oxidizing causing it to tarnishing. Therefore Silver Plated items are a temporary cheaper alternative to Sterling Silver.

Sterling Silver is made with 92.5% pure Silver, because of this high Silver content prices in comparison to Silver Plated items will vary and no tarnishing is expected to occur if correctly cared for.

We highly recommend our handmade Sterling Silver Jewellery based upon it's lasting quality. We recommend purchasing a polishing cloth, to keep them shiny and new!   

Caring for my Silver Plated item?

Silver Plated jewellery is prone to tarnishing, we recommend;

    • Avoiding contact with water
    • Wearing sparingly
  • Store in a dry area

Caring for my Sterling Silver item?

You may still experience slight oxidization with Sterling Silver, but this can be easily fixed by;

    • Regular polishing
    • Avoiding strong bleaches or chlorinated water
  • storing in a dry area  

How do i care for my crystal items? 

Crystals are capable of encapsulating and storing healing energies. There are many ways to cleanse and protect the healing properties of your crystals, we recommend;

  • Using the Luna energy of a full moon by recharging them in direct moon light
  • Using the smoke of sage
  • Personal favorite: The ocean*

* Dependent on crystal Pyrite, Lapis Lazuli, Opal etc should avoid contact with salt water.
