The challenge was to make a bolster that performed well in hot studios (as well as everywhere else). We searched high and low to find fabrics that was water resistant, breathable, and easy to clean between uses. And, we did it!
- waterproof breathable interior
- microfibre cover comes in teal or moth (a classic-looking browny-grey)
- zipperless cover, giving it a clean, sleek look from all directions
- available in the cylindrical or rectangular form
Though it was designed for the yoga practitioners who like the heat, (or otherwise glistening yoga types), these bolsters have other great benefits.
These Bolsters Have It All
The real clincher is the new easy-to-remove cover, which benefits all yogis (and studio cleaners!) by making it easier to wash and replace. The innovative new sheath-like cover design has enough material left at the top to make it eminently grabbable — no handle required! This is a distinct improvement on the classic handle design, which puts a lot of strain on the handle seams, causing wear after years of studio use.
The plush, cozy microfibre cover makes the Pro Bolsters more huggable than ever. Think the coziness of fleece crossed with the luxuriousness of suede. I’m addicted to rubbing my face and hands over it. It’s a soft, welcoming surface for your skin…you just can’t stop touching it…you’ve been warned!
