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 Zafu 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.
Provides spine support and alignment when meditating and during pranayama practice. Buckwheat hull fill adjusts to body contours. For leg and knee support and comfort, pair with a chattra zabuton. So lovely you won’t want to put your chattra meditation cushions away.
