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.

    Zafu Meditation Cushion

    Posted by David Bogart on Jul 5th, 2019

    This zafu seems very well made and the kapok filling is comfortable. I am used to a low cushion, so it was easy for me to remove some of the kapok and achieve the level I like. I am very satisfied.

    I am very happy with the purchase. The cushion even has a little strap that blends with the sides of the cushion for easy transportation.

    Quality cushion, fast shipping

    Posted by Emily on Dec 16th, 2017

    I love my new cushion. I chose the kapok filling after reading a suggestion about it being good for beginners. I received the cushion about a week after ordering it which is pretty good as compared with other sites I was looking at. I love that I can remove the cover to wash it. The cover is thick and I think it will hold up for many years.

    Comfortable, firm

    I have tried a few brands of these and I think this brand is the sturdiest, the kapock has very little give, but still gives a feeling of softness underneath. This cushion is quite raised, so the legs rest comfortably below, not requiring much flexibility.

    This cushion is just great. The fabric seems high quality and durable, and I appreciate the optional upgrade for it to be removable for washing! Very comfortable, yet firm and sturdy in feel. The color was as pictured too. And it quickly shipped. Thank you very much Sage!

    Very Happy With My Purchase!

    Posted by E on Sep 16th, 2015

    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!
