Mustard Vasuki Neck Cushion's print is named for the Hindu Lord Shiva’s snake companion. Snake worship is a long followed tradition in India where snakes are considered creatures of strength and their skin shedding represents rebirth. Lord Shiva is often depicted wearing Vasuki around his neck, a reminder to devotees to search within for strength and happiness.  Hand-block printed in warm mustard by master artisans in India, this chattra beauty is finished with illuminating orange, a color significant in Hindu, Buddhist and Sikh faiths, and festooned with a colorful tassel like those seen on the camels of Rajasthan’s great Thar Desert. 100% cotton cover, liner and buckwheat hull fill. So lovely your practice will be inspired.

Supports the neck during meditation and restorative yoga.  Wonderful as gentle, comforting weight on your stomach, ankles or hands during savasana. 

the making
Block printing is a multi-step process requiring skill and patience. This textile technique is believed to have originated in India, and is traditionally passed from one generation to the next. Master carvers trace a design motif onto a wood block then tap the design into the wood to guide chiseling a relief pattern. Fabric is pre-washed then pinned in place on a long printing table.  An ink master mixes color and skilled printers block print ink to cloth, slowly and meticulously repeating the process along the fabric length to create beautiful, unique textiles.  The printed fabric is then heated to set and bond ink, followed by washing and pressing before cutting and stitching.  Imperfections including ink density and block alignment are characteristic of this ancient printing method.
