Tamarind Mehndi Neck Cushion’s print is inspired by the decorative skin art created on hands, feet and arms during Hindu festivals and weddings. The use of mehndi (from the Sanskrit word mendhikā) and haldi (turmeric paste stain) is described in the earliest Hindu Vedic ritual books; it symbolizes the outer and inner sun, representing the Vedic idea of awakening the inner light. Hand-block printed in warm tamarind brown. Finished with illuminating orange piping and a colorful tassel like those seen on the camels of Rajasthan’s great Thar Desert. Divine in any home practice or studio interior.
Supports the neck during meditation and restorative yoga. Also wonderful as gentle, comforting weight on your stomach, ankles or hands during savasana. Buckwheat hull fill adjusts to neck contour. Zipper runs the length of the cover for easy access to remove or add buckwheat hull fill. Cover easily removes for washing.
100% cotton cover hand-crafted in India; integrated handle; lined with 100% cotton liner. Filled with US buckwheat hulls. Do not heat.
