We are offering our Zafu Meditation Cushion Shell, without any fill, primarily for our International Customers. Shipping weight is a major contirbutor to expensive International shipping. These empty shells weigh about 1 pound allowing you to choose First Class Parcel Shipping Rate at significant savings.

Once you receive the Empty Shell (always in off white) and Cover in your choice of color, simply fill the shell with material available in your region:

  • Buckwheat Hulls (Husks)
  • Spelt Hulls (Husks)
  • Kapok Fiber
  • Cotton Fiber
  • Wool
  • Dry Goods such as Beans

You may need to use a wooden handle to pack the material in firmly. You will want to use material that will provide dense fill without being too expensive or heavy. Foam fill is too spongy and Flax seeds will be costly and weigh too much. 

NOTE: These are only the fabric components. We do not offer cushion fill separately. To order a Zafu Meditation Cushion already filled with Kapok or Buckwheat Hulls, please Go to the Zafu Meditation Cushion Product.


  • Dimensions: 14 inches diameter by 7-1/2 inches high
  • Note: These are the dimensions that are achieved when we fully stuff these cushions with Buckwheat Hulls or Kapok. The exact dimensions will vary depending on the stuffing material used and how full you fill your Zafu
  • Removable cover has built-in carry handle
  • Fill requirements:
    • Kapok or Cotton: 4 pounds
    • Buckwheat Hulls: 6 pounds
