Yoga Meditation Floor Cushion in pale pink/peach Velvet with Kapok Filling
I love to upcycle fabric and the local curtain shop often sells its off-cuts of fabrics at a fabulous discount. Brilliant for me , you and the planet! Anyway, I came accross this velvet curtain, complete with header tape (see picture). Quite why it ended up in the off-cut section I dont know. Perhaps the customer changed their mind or the curtain shop made it to the wrong length. We'll never know....
The velvet fabric is really strong and sturdy. I'd say its pale pink, but in other lights its almost peach. Its gathered on both sides and finished in the middle with a handmade flower and kapok filled soft button.
The floor cushion is filled with Organic Kapok. If you've never heard of this, think of the most squidgy teddy bear you can imagine and it is more than likely filled with this. Kapok is the seed pod fluff of a rain forest tree called the Ceiba tree or the silk cotton tree. The pods are harvested and the trees are left standing.
If you're just starting out in Yoga or Meditation and find it hard to sit on the floor in a crossed legged position then this could be for you.
A Yoga Meditation Cushion helps discomfort by raising your hips, therefore allowing your knees to drop to the floor allowing you to sit in a straighter upright position.
This cushion supports the natural curvature of the spine, making sitting for longer much more comfortable.
Wouldnt this look lovely in a Yoga Meditation Studio at home. Perfect as a present for friends or just as a decadent floor cushion.
