Zodiac Yoga or Baby Pillows
Size: 23 x 32 cm / 9 x 12.5 in
Each constellation of the zodiac is represented on these mini pillows, filled with mustard seeds. The 12 zodiac formations have been beautifully hand-embroidered by the women of our sister organisation, Arke. Nila conducts training programs for the women of Arke in tailoring and embroidery so that they may generate regular incomes for themselves and their families. The healing properties of mustard seeds are documented in classic Ayurvedic texts. A pillow filled with these medicinal seeds has a weight which is soothing and comforting when placed over the eyes at the end of a yoga practice. These pillows are also suitable for babies as the seed fillers are flexible and shape themselves around the head. Each piece is hand-woven with hanspun cotton, dyed naturally with indigo. Natural indigo is used in Ayurvedic skincare as a salve. Its plant-based nature is said to be gentle and restorative.
100% handloom cotton
Hand wash gently with cold water and line dry in the shade. Natural indigo is a millennia-old plant dye. The alchemy of earth, water; air, and indigo leaves creates an unpredictable beauty.
Please handle this precious piece with care, and it may last you a lifetime. Wash separately for the first few washes. The rich natural colour may fade slightly over time, with exposure to direct sunlight.
