The Zafu Meditation Cushion is the traditional round, pleated cushion used for sitting meditation. The Zafu is available with either Kapok or Buckwheat Hull fill. Kapok is a cotton-like fiber that creates a soft, spongy feel. Buckwheat Hulls are the non-food husk of the buckwheat grain. The hulls feel more firm, but conform to the shape of the body and create a comfortable, stable platform.
Both types of fill are naturally organic requiring no chemical treatment. They are naturally resistant to insects and mold.
The Zafu is available in an economy model with the fill directly inside the 100% Cotton Twill fabric, or in a Deluxe model with the fill contained in linen fabric and the Cotton Twill fabric cover is removable and washable.

Firm, light and durable. Provides the consistent support I was looking for.

Product was exactly what I expected based on web site description. I was a little uncertain since I had never bought (or used) a meditation cushion before, but I am thrilled with my decision.
The removable cover is worth the extra money.
I am only 5'4" and worried I may be too short to sit comfortably, but that was not a problem!

I sit and breathe. I sit and breathe. In. Out. My Sage zafu and zabuton with
the new cover are instrumental in my peacefulness. Empty. Joy.

My zafu cushion is perfect. I love how well it's made, and I love the color, and I especially love how comfortable it is. (It's a big step up from an ever changing assortment of pillows and folded blankets.) Your customer service was excellent, and the cushion arrived even before I expected it. Thank you!

This meditation cushion is nicely made, providing strong but flexible support for the sit bones and spine. It is a great improvement on the random pillow and sofa cushions I used previously. The removable cover is a nice touch for the longevity of the product. Thank you, Sage Meditation!
