Artisans hand-block print chattra Block Print Yoga Mat Bags in divine prints inspired by the architecture of India's historical palaces, forts and temples, textiles, and spiritual practices. Crafted in ethical workshop in India using traditional techniques.

The delicate, complicated pattern of Black Bandhani Yoga Mat Bag is inspired by the dots and circles of Bandhani tie and dye textiles. Bandhani comes from the Hindi word bandhan, meaning tying up, and is used in the turbans, saris and skirts of Rajasthan and Gujurat.

Generously sized to fit all mat sizes.  Hand block-printed in rich black; illuminating orange detail including adjustable strap slide, piping, zip pocket and drawstring; adorned with a colorful tassel like those seen on the camels of Rajasthan's great Thar desert.

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.  Read more about Rajasthan block print methods, and learn about the meaning of orange in Hindu, Buddhist and Sikh faiths.
