Our chakra cushions come in a range of 7 colours and are based on the 7 major energy centres of the human body (chakras).
Each cushion is made from quality fabrics and thread, and features a glass beaded handle in the 7 chakra colours.
Each cushion is designed to vibrationally resonate with a particular energy centre and it’s correlating organs, via colour and ancient symbol.
I met Nengah around 5 years ago. At that time she had recently lost her husband to cancer, leaving her a single mum of two boys aged 4 and 12. Life in Bali is not easy for a single Mum and every day I would watch Nengah carrying 20 litre buckets filled with river stones and sand, up and down the waterfall path to where a building was being constructed. One day I happen to be coming up the path behind a tourist man. I saw Nengah ask him if he would please help her to lift the bucket on top of her head. The man was very obliging and Nengah thanked him profusely as she happily stood herself up from squatting position with the heavy load on her head and wandered up the jungle path.
In that moment, I thought my heart was going to break. I couldn’t even imagine how tired her legs and body must have felt… these buckets filled with stone and sand. I knew I had to help her!
She was living at that time with her husband’s family, on an old mattress on the cement floor. I decided I wanted to build her a home and set her up in her own sewing business, given that she was actually a very qualified clothing sewer.
Well, thanks to many beautiful people and their generous donations, I was able to do both over a 2 year period. Nengah’s sewing business in Bali is where each cushion originates.
