Zafu Buckwheat - Regular
A zafu is the meditation cushion customarily used in the Japanese Zen Buddhist tradition.
Our Buckwheat Zafus are made by us to our design from 100% strong cotton drill. They are filled with Organic Buckwheat Hulls (an agricultural by-product). The properties of this filling are further explained in our Guide to Cushion Fillings; additionally we are happy to deal with any queries you may have if you contact us by e-mail or phone.
Our zafu design features a hidden pleat to allow the user to make adjustments to the firmness of the cushion by removing or adding some of the filling. The zafu can be easily cleaned and maintained in its pristine condition by occasionally brushing it down using a stiff brush dipped in lukewarm water.
Zafus are traditionally paired with a Zabuton or textile Flat Mat - see Meditation Mats. Other types of meditation cushion can be viewed elsewhere in this section - our Guide to Choosing a Meditation Products is designed to assist your decision as to the right cushion for you given your individual meditation needs.
