Chindit Buddhist Temple Guardian on an India Ink Grey Yoga Vest by Disorder. This vests is made from the highest quality 100% organic ring-sun combed cotton. The quality of the fabric and loose fitting design make it idea for Yoga.
The inspiration for the design on this vest, is from a trip to the serene Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon, Myanmar. It started as a sketch of the twin Chindith Temple Guardians that stand resolutely outside every Buddhist pagoda. They protect the temple and visitors from evil spirits. Also, the name ‘Chindits’ references the Allied soldiers that fought the Japanese in Burma during WW2, borrowing their name and emblem from these serene but scary Buddhist Temple Guardians.
