The classic, rich patterns of ikat cloth inspired Kiwi Ikat print. A coveted commodity along Asia’s great Silk Road, the skill and time required to dye and weave ikat is so revered in some cultures it’s believed the cloth is imbued with magical powers. If you’re ever at Lotsa Temple in Alchi in Ladakh, look for ikat patterns painted on the ceilings.
In warm green with illuminating orange piping, Kiwi Ikat Pranayama Bolster is adorned with a colorful mirror tassel like those seen on the camels of Rajasthan’s great Thar desert. Divine in any home practice or studio interior.
Place a chattra pranayama bolster along your spine for support and expansion during deep breath practice. Also provides support to reduce strain and enhance relaxation during restorative yoga poses. Aids in deepening poses, and offers assistance when practicing while pregnant and when learning asanas.
100% cotton cover hand-crafted in India; integrated handle; lined with 100% cotton liner; hand-packed in the USA with US-grown clean cotton.
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.
