SUDURUS SUDURUS


It is one of the most usual rosaries of the wider Arabian world, used as an expression of their religious faith.

The need of the creation of a more durable and economic rosary due to the amber’s high cost, led people to look for new materials for the bead’s manufacturing, which had to be durable, aesthetical and costless.

The result was satisfactory enough and therefore the Sudurus rosaries started to be manufactured in big quantities in order to cover the demand of Arabian world. These beads were made with the mix of Bakelite and other natural materials.The production of these beads’ started in the middle of 19th century and ended at about 1940.

We usually find them in yellow, brown and orange colourings, and sometimes we can see some religious symbols of pyrography on them, such as eyes, crosses, etc.

They have a clear, limpid sound and due to their durability and reliability, they are the most considered in the komboloy’s history.
