Prayer Shawls from Ashadeep in a Variety of ColoursChant Malas
***Please note that due to the handmade nature of these textiles, that all amounts are limited and each shawl completely unique.***
As you may know know, I’ve been working with Ashadeep, a charity in Guwahati that works with women and children (and now men) with learning, social and mental health challenges who have been made homeless for a variety of reasons, for a number of years now. I won’t go into detail here as all the info is here but suffice it to say that this charity is doing incredible work to ensure that the women (who I buy these supplies from) in their care are safe and able to work in a setting supportive to their needs, which pays them fairly, directly to their own bank account and ensures that they always have a bed and food. I’m in awe of what they do and am always so thrilled to support them by buying their textiles.
These prayer shawls have been hand-spun and then hand-woven on traditional looms by the women using locally-sourced cotton. Each measures approx. 190mm x 80mm.
The shawls have been designed to cover the shoulders and head during your meditation practice. This helps to contain energy created within the body whilst in the meditative state.
