Slate Darpan Zafu Meditation Cushion's print is inspired by the amazing, light-reflecting hall of mirrors at Amber Fort in Jaipur.  In India a darpan, mirror, signifies reflection and faithful depiction.  Screen printed in beautiful blue with gray tones by master artisans in India, this chattra beauty is accented 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 and liner; adjustable buckwheat hull fill contours to the body. So lovely you won’t want to put your chattra meditation cushion away.

the making
Screen printing, one of the earliest textile techniques for creating precise images on cloth, is a multi-step process requiring skill and patience. Fabric is stretched flat then overlayed with a design motif blocking stencil.  A handmade screen is placed on top of the cloth and stencil.  Ink is applied, then a blade is moved across the screen, pushing the ink through to print pattern to cloth.  Often, as with chattra screen printing, two master printers move the blade across the fabric;  the action is meditative and rhythmic. The cloth is then heated to bond ink to fabric, followed by washing and pressing before cutting and stitching.
