The classic, rich patterns of ikat cloth inspired chattra’s Kiwi Ikat Yoga Mat Bag 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 ceiling.
