Please Note: due to the nature of Handicraft work, there may be slight measurement differences here & there in the hand cutting & making of the sets. Call them the uniqueness of each set made by hand.

Also the production of mills with the fabric, a little difference in the colors of fabric do happen with different batches, over the years & the monitor of your screens may also make colors look a little different. Thanks for your understanding & support.

We carry 4 different Fabric qualities in our Prayer Flags Collections.

Cotton: 100% Natural Cotton, as close to nature that one can get with this selection & not available much on the market. All our lines of English/ Tibetan alternated Prayer Flags sets are made on this Fabric, as we wish to be as close to Natural as possible. Being a more costly fabric & heavier too. The colors fade much faster with the elements of the natural weather. The energy of the Sun, Rain & Wind will gradually take its toll on them, a little faster than the other 3 fabrics below. Garden Cotton: This is a nice blend of about 70% cotton & 30% polyester, it incorporates the better aspects of Cotton & Polyester. Longer lasting with major natural components, to have best of both. Our Birthday & New Year Prayer Flags, are on only 8.5" x 11" fabric size, with Full Lungta M-10+1 & Gyaltsen Tsemo ( Victory Banner) S-10 +1 are also available on this Fabrics, as with our sets of Blank Prayer Flag, & PEACE PROJECT KITS too.

Polyester: This is a synthetic product which holds the color elements of the fabric much better & may last a little longer in the weather, but is much cheaper & lighter but also more harmful to Mother Earth. Although we prefer not to carry this, over the years, Patrons have requested these for the cost factor. None of our actual line of Prayer Flags are made on this Fabric, but are made by others for Sale here.

Satin : This is our top of the line fabric for Prayer Flags & only come in a few Prayer Flags. Our Cream of the Crops of production. Not aware this quality is available on the market elsewhere. Our Combo sets, Mini Om Mani Padme Hum, Mini CAR Prayer Flags & mini Lungta are made on this Fabric.

Mainly made to be more for Gifting with a much Classier, look if that is what one could call them.

Disclaimer:
Well, none of our sets of Flags are everlasting, which would defeat the very concept of Impermanence (As a profound Scholar from NYC once asked me, if you make them, I would buy more for my Estate Farm) & so all our sets would need to replenished with time. As we serve our bodies regularly with food & drinks for sustainability. So will the needs of your Prayers, "Soul Food" Incense & Khata to go with ceremony change with the times & elements of the weather & your needs.

We hope this helps make your decision of choice much better & easier.

CUSTOM PRAYER FLAGS:
If you have an idea & design. You would like a custom job made of your thoughts & designs, as we have done over the years for many non Profits & companies. We will be glad to help in any way to make that a reality for you.

Please Call or email us for details with your specifics for a quote. It takes time & turnaround is about 6-8 weeks mini, after final approval.
