Blankets are my #1 recommended prop for any yoga asana, pranayama or meditation practice. Bolster your yoga practice with environmental and socially conscious blankets.
MADE FROM RECYCLED FIBERS
Excess fabric from clothing production is shredded and re-spun into yarn, helping to keep textile waste out of the landfill.
HANDWOVEN ON WOODEN PEDAL LOOMS
Elder artisan weavers from Centra Mexico use traditional wooden looms to make these blankets, keeping their craft alive.
Designed by two practitioners, who bonded on their journey of cultivating harmony within themselves, amongst each other and around the earth.
About the Collaboration:
Daria Drake is the heart and brains behind @alifealigned.co. She is a Transformational Guide for High Achievers Who Serve.
We bonded during our trauma-sensitive yoga teacher training with MindBody Centering Yoga and discovered a shared passion for creating beautiful, functional and eco-friendly goods. With her many skills, including graphic design, Daria helped design the Bolstered logo, and soon, helped me make this dream come true - the most beautiful yoga blanket with eco-friendly textiles and a positive social impact.
About the Weavers:
Quality over quantity and moving at an easeful pace are fundamental values of Bolstered. In 2021 I ventured to Mexico on a discovery mission and got to see first hand how handwoven blankets are made. It was more than a year later that I found the right weaving partners, and here we are!
These blankets were made on traditional wooden pedal looms by a weaving group in Tlaxcala, Mexico. The textile tradition of Tlaxcala is one of the oldest in the country. But since younger generations tend to find work in factories, the older generations are keeping their craft alive. By purchasing this blanket you can feel good that supporting fair markets for skilled artisans.
