India's block print artisans often develop words for prints that aren't in the Hindi vocabulary. They refer to the triangle zig-zag shaped pattern in this print as kikri. This motif is also common as decorative edging on shawls, including those presented along with coconuts, rice and rupees to the statues of deities in Hindu temples.
In warm green with illuminating orange piping, Kiwi Kikri Pranayama Bolster is adorned with a colorful mirror tassel like those seen on the camels of Rajasthan’s great Thar desert. Divine in any home practice or studio interior.
Place a chattra pranayama bolster along your spine for support and expansion during deep breath practice. Also provides support to reduce strain and enhance relaxation during restorative yoga poses. Aids in deepening poses, and offers assistance when practicing while pregnant and when learning asanas.
100% cotton cover hand-crafted in India; integrated handle; lined with 100% cotton liner; hand-packed in the USA with US-grown clean cotton.
The artisan's hand work is revealed in each chattra textile, including print density and block alignment; imperfections are characteristic and add to the charm of this traditional technique.
