Mud Monsoon Pranayama Bolster’s print is reminiscent of capital and pavilion floral carvings of Fatehpur Sikri, the abandoned city of Emperor Akbar not far from Agra; it includes subtle line work similar to the monsoon-celebrating rain imagery painted in the Hall of Clouds mural room at Junagarh Fort in Bikaner, Rajasthan.  Hand block printed in rich brown by master artisans in India, this chattra beauty is finished with mud piping and festooned with a pompom tassel like those seen on the camels of Rajasthan’s great Thar Desert. 100% cotton cover, liner and firm cotton fill. So lovely your practice will be inspired.

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.
