chattra Charcoal Darpan Zafu Cushion

Charcoal Darpan Pranayama Yoga Bolster's print is named for the amazing, light-reflecting hall of mirrors at Amber Fort in Jaipur.  In Indian culture a darpan, a mirror, signifies reflection and faithful depiction. Screen printed in a lovely, rich charcoal grey by master artisans in India and festooned with a colorful tassel like those seen on the camels of Rajasthan’s great Thar Desert. 100% cotton cover, liner and firm cotton fill. 

the making
Screen printing, one of the earliest textile techniques for creating precise images on cloth, is a multi-step process requiring skill and patience. Fabric is stretched flat then overlayed with a design motif blocking stencil.  A handmade screen is placed on top of the cloth and stencil.  Ink is applied, then a blade is moved across the screen, pushing the ink through to print pattern to cloth.  Often, as with chattra screen printing, two master printers move the blade across the fabric;  the action is meditative and rhythmic. The cloth is then heated to bond ink to fabric, followed by washing and pressing before cutting and stitching.
