ZABUTON MAT Colored like precious jewels of deep burgundy and gold, our Tibetan Splendor cushions will transform your meditation space while you transform your mind. In the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, red is the color of fire and connotes the transformation of desire and attachment into discriminating wisdom. Yellow, the color of the earth, symbolizes groundedness and equanimity. It represents the transmutation of pride and self-importance into the wisdom of equality.
The foundation cushion for your zafu (round sitting cushion) or meditation bench. A zabuton (pron. zah'-boo-tawn) provides essential cushioning for your ankles and knees when sitting cross-legged on a zafu or on a meditation bench. Years of Zen Center living have gone into the design of this mat.
Eight pounds of recycled cotton batting are stuffed into a muslin cover and tufted in four places to form a permanent inner cushion. A snug-fitting cover, with a concealed zipper, made from durable 9 oz., 100% cotton twill fabric is slipped over the inner cushion and tufted in the center for a finished look.
No need to replace the entire zabuton if the cover becomes soiled. Simply clip the center tuft and remove the cover. All covers are washable and new covers may be ordered.

ZAFU PILLOW Buckwheat hulls provide proper support with no break-in period—feels like sitting on sand!
Our best-selling product! When we introduced the Buckwheat Hull Zafu (pron. zah'-foo) in 1996, we knew this cushion provided an astonishing improvement in comfort. Today, it is our bestselling product. While still providing all the support of a traditional kapok-filled zafu, the Buckwheat Hull Zafu conforms more readily to each individual's shape and is somewhat softer. It is like sitting on sand at the beach - the hulls move where you want them.
We stuff the Buckwheat Hull Zafu with approximately 4 1/2 lbs. of buckwheat hulls encased in a zippered muslin shell making it easy to add/remove the hulls. The Buckwheat Hull Zafu measures 15" in diameter with a 5 1/2" loft. Made of durable 10 oz., 100% cotton duck fabric with carrying handle. Removable zippered cover for easy washing.
Size: 15" dia, 5 1/2" h
Fill: 4 1/2 lbs buckwheat hulls in a zippered, 100% cotton muslin casing
Cover: 10 oz 100% cotton duck; zipper; carrying handle; washable
