New at Banyen - Lotus Wraps

Lotus Wraps are an easy, secure, and comfortable tool in which to sit and stretch while being deeply supported. They are locally designed out of a strongly woven natural linen. Earth to Ethers lovingly makes the wraps in small batches, and all of their packaging is either recyclable or compostable.

The Lotus Wrap was born during its founder Kara’s sitting meditation practice. She felt that to be able to focus more on her inner state, she first had to address the distraction of her uncomfortable outer state. Now, the supportive Lotus Wraps are being used, both for sitting and yoga practices. They can also be used as a chair around the home or in the park. Enclosed with every Lotus Wrap, there is an easy-to-use guide. In August, we welcome these wraps into our store. Come in and try them out!
