The print of Sky Feather Zafu Meditation Cushion celebrates the master craftsmen who carved leaves, flowers and other foliage into the solid stone doorway arches and borders of India’s mosques, palaces and old mansions.  A feathery design similar to foliage patterns found on the Udai Bilas Palace in Rajasthan, Sky Feather Zafu is hand block printed in a tranquil blue, 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; firm cotton fill. So lovely you won’t want to put your chattra meditation cushion away.

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.
