The geometric floral print of Pool Jali Zafu Meditation Cushion was inspired by the marble lattice screens of the old palaces and forts of Rajasthan. A jali was an essential architectural element filtering sun, casting lovely patterned shadows, and creating privacy. Hand block printed in refreshing blue-green by master artisans in India, this chattra beauty is accented with illuminating orange, a color significant in Hindu, Buddhist and Sikh faiths, and festooned with a colorful tassel like those seen on the camels of Rajasthan’s great Thar Desert. 100% cotton cover and liner;  adjustable buckwheat hull fill contours to the body. So lovely you won't want to put away your chattra meditation cushion.

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.
