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. Hand block printed in rich black with illuminating orange, a color significant in Hindu, Buddhist and Sikh faiths, detail including adjustable strap slide, piping, zip pocket and drawstring. Festooned with a colorful tassel like those seen on the camels of Rajasthan’s great Thar Desert. 100% cotton; generously sized to fit most mats..

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.
