The classic, rich patterns of ikat cloth inspired Horizon Ikat print. A coveted commodity along Asia’s great Silk Road, the skill and time required to dye and weave ikat is so revered in some cultures it’s believed the cloth is imbued with magical powers. If you’re ever at Lotsa Temple in Alchi in Ladakh, look for ikat patterns painted on the ceilings.
In beautiful blue-grey with illuminating orange detail, Horizon Ikat Zabuton Meditation Cushion 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.
Generously sized zabuton provides leg and knee support and cushioning during meditation practice; can also be used in shoulder stand and other asanas. Meditation is even more divine when Kiwi Ikat Zabuton is paired with a chattra zafu. So lovely you won’t want to put your chattra meditation cushions away.
100% cotton cover hand-crafted in India; integrated handle; lined with 100% cotton liner; hand-packed in the USA with US-grown clean cotton.
