Charcoal Mehndi Zabuton Meditation Cushion’s print is inspired by the decorative skin art created on hands, feet and arms during Hindu festivals and weddings. The use of mehndi (from the Sanskrit word mendhikā) and haldi (turmeric paste stain) is described in the earliest Hindu Vedic ritual books; it symbolizes the outer and inner sun, representing the Vedic idea of awakening the inner light.
Hand-block printed in lovely charcoal. Finished with illuminating orange detail and a colorful 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 paired with 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.
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.

chattra zabutons are hand finished on order and ship within 48 hours of order receipt via UPS ground.
