Fuchsia Shikhara Zafu Meditation Cushion's print honors the architecture of Northern India's Hindu and Jain temples.  A Sanskrit word, Shikhara’s literal translation is "mountain peak”;  it refers to the rising tower over a temple’s inner sanctum where the presiding deity is enshrined. Hand-block printed in bright fuchsia pink. Finished with illuminating orange piping and a colorful tassel like those seen on the camels of Rajasthan’s great Thar Desert. Divine in any home practice or studio interior.

Provides spine support and alignment when meditating and during pranayama practice. Buckwheat hull fill adjusts to body contours. For leg and knee support and comfort, pair Fuchsia Shikhara Zafu with a color co-ordinated Fuchsia Mehndi Zabuton. 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.  Filled with US buckwheat hulls. Do not heat.

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.  

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