Charcoal Mehndi Zaisu Meditation Chair’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.
Super cushy zaisu meditation floor chair is ideal for extended meditation. Fully padded back rest and seat. Adjustable to five positions including flat. Great with a chattra neck cushion if you want a little extra lower back support.
Hand block printed in rich charcoal grey 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; firm cotton fill. So lovely you won’t want to put your chattra meditation chair away.
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.
