We’re thrilled to offer this limited edition neck cushion meticulously crafted by textile master Jaya Kanwar and her team of artisans in her Delhi workshop.  Jaya reveres India’s craft heritage:  she combines weaving, printing and stitching traditions to create unique, timeless textiles.

 Denim Dhaan collection celebrates the patch-worked rice paddy fields of India.  Hand block printed stripes, dots and color blocks on hand-spun cotton khadi; hand-stitched trim and borders; hand-crafted tassel, and details in illuminating orange, a color significant in Hindu, Buddhist and Sikh faiths.  From print to trim, each neck cushion reveals the nuanced handwork of the makers. 100% cotton cover, liner and buckwheat hull fill. So lovely your practice will be inspired.

Supports the neck during meditation and restorative yoga.  Wonderful as gentle, comforting weight on your stomach, ankles or hands during savasana. 

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.
