Ink Trikona Pranayama Yoga Bolster’s print honors the triangle, a powerful, mythical shape symbolizing the Universe and believed to assist meditation. A downward trikona, connected with female energy, represents water and prakriti (one’s nature or matter). An upward triangle indicates agni (fire) and purusha (spirit); it is associated with the celestial and, in many cultures, symbolizes rising energy and spiritual aspiration. Screen printed in deep charcoal by master artisans in India, this chattra beauty is finished 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, liner and firm cotton fill. So lovely your practice will be inspired.

Screen printing, one of the earliest textile techniques for creating precise images on cloth, is a multi-step process requiring skill and patience. Fabric is stretched flat then overlayed with a design motif blocking stencil. A handmade screen is placed on top of the cloth and stencil. Ink is applied, then a blade is moved across the screen, pushing the ink through to print pattern to cloth. Often, as with chattra screen printing, two master printers move the blade across the fabric; the action is meditative and rhythmic. The cloth is then heated to bond ink to fabric, followed by washing and pressing before cutting and stitching.
