The classic, rich patterns of ikat cloth inspired Mist Ikat Neck Cushion's 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. Hand block printed in soft blue by master artisans in India, finished with mud piping and festooned with a pompom tassel like those seen on the camels of Rajasthan’s great Thar Desert. 100% cotton cover and liner; filled with buckwheat hulls. 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.
