Chattra Zafu Cushion - Himalaya
|Availability:||In stock (1)|
This beautiful zafu is named for Alchi, a hamlet high in the Indian Himalayas. Alchi is home to a small, 900-year old Buddhist monastery. This temple complex has some of the best-preserved examples of Buddhist art, from walls covered with hundreds of small seated Buddhas to weathered paintings of ikat fabric decorating the ceilings. 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 is believed the cloth is imbued with magical powers.
Provides spine support and alignment when meditating and during pranayama practice. Buckwheat hull fill adjusts to body contours. For leg and knee support and comfort, pair with a chattra zabuton. So lovely you won’t want to put your chattra meditation cushions away.

Features a hand-crafted tassel. 100% cotton cover crafted in India; integrated handle; lined with 100% cotton liner; hand-filled in the USA with US grown buckwheat hulls.
