Yoga Bolster

Volunteers at Fabricate have been busy creating a range of yoga bolsters.

A yoga bolster is an accessory popular among practitioners of the art.

The bolster is used to provide comfort, support poses and increase stretching during restorative postures and deep breathing exercises.

Our bolsters are full of fabric processed by our shredder. Funded via a grant from the sustainability fund of Queenstown Lakes District Council our shredder is the only such machine in the Region.

Using the machine allows clean clothing and other textiles to be upcycled and reused rather than dumped.

Material processed by the shredder is also used as stuffing across a host of products created by Workshop members in our textile work room.
