Round Meditation Cushion - Black Floral
Our artisans work is shown in each Calm Buddhi Zafu. In hand block printing imperfections are characteristic and add to the charm of this traditional technique.
The Round Zafu helps you to sit tall with relaxed hips. Based on traditional meditation cushion design, its simple shape is time-tested and perfect for new and experienced meditators alike. Great for meditation and for casual sitting at home.
Provides postural support to the spine during meditation and pranayama practice. Filled with Buckwheat hulls which contours to your unique body.
For leg and knee support, pair with a color co-ordinated Zabuton. You will not want to put these away ~ a talking point and constant reminder to promote a regular daily practice.
When preparing for meditation have the knees so they are lower than the hips. This allows for circulation to the lower limbs during sitting positions. Our zafus offer more room to allow for the knees to naturally drop to the floor.
This pattern was created using two blocks. One for the outline and the other for the finer detail of the flower. The black dye used is called syahi which is a black printing paste made from scrap recycled iron which is fermented with molasses and water for 15 days. This blend creates a rich brown colour that is briefly boiled with tamarind powder. When printing the colour turns to black and is laid to dry and fix in the sun for one-two days. The fabric is then submerged into alizarin dye to fix the black dye. Fabric is washed and followed by another dip in harder to fix the dye.
