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.

The cushion is strong and exceptionally well made. Beautiful.
I received my Zafu meditation cushion a couple of weeks ago. It is solid in material, weight, design, and craftsmanship. The owner Jay was transparent and communicative in these trying quarantine times. Though the orders may have been slowed down due to the virus, I respect the spirit of the work environment that cares for their own craftsmen to make sure they are not compromised. I have no problem waiting longer if that means people are safe. This care is consistent with the details and energy that goes into the product you order. Thank you for the cushion! It has improved the experience of meditation on my end. Warmly, Oscar
It’s perfect. Very durable high quality cover, I like that it’s removable so I can easily wash it without having to dump the filling out. The color is beautiful and the carrying handle is a plus. Worth the price, I’m sure it will last a very long time.
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.
Beautiful cushion. Comfortable yet sturdy.
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.
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.
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!
