Amin – Japa - A Mindful Life

meet amin …

We first met Amin in Dharamsala, home of the Dalai Lama, where he has a lovely spiritual shop selling his incredible macrame necklaces and macrame bracelets. Amin grew up in Kashmir where he was trained as a traditional Kashmiri carpet maker from a young age. Later in life Amin came across macrame – the art of knot tying – and it became his life’s passion. He taught himself how to weave beautiful macrame patterns and moved south to the state of Himachal Pradesh where he could share his love for macrame knots and natural gemstones with travellers from around the world.

Amin is passionate about gemstones and will only use natural crystals in all of his macrame jewellery. He is a fountain of knowledge when it comes to healing stones knowing all of the properties for every gemstone he has ever come across – and that is a lot! He loves to teach macrame to world travellers who stumble into his humble workshop and will always find time make you a sweet cup of chai tea and share stories.
