The classic, rich patterns of ikat cloth inspired chattra’s Kiwi Ikat Zafu print.

If you’re ever at Lotsa Temple in Alchi in Ladakh, look for ikat patterns painted on the ceiling.

About: chattra’s richly-colored, hand-block-printed yoga and mediation props and bags celebrate India's architecture, design, and spiritual heritage. Sanskrit for parasol, chattra symbolizes dignity and protection. In Buddhism, a chattra tops stupa monuments and often represents the Buddha. The playful and profound elephant-headed Hindu deity Ganesha, remover of obstacles and Lord of Beginnings, often carries a chattra. Lovely meanings to enhance yoga and mediation practice.
