A traditional meditation cushion, our round silk zafu has a luxurious, smooth silk cover with an intricate variegated Jacquard pattern. Our zafu has pleated sides and a sturdy, double-stitched handle sewn on one side. We fill our zafus with 100% natural cotton. The filling is densely packed to provide a solid cushion, and yet is soft enough to be comfortable since the zafu is made with all natural fibers. The outer cover is made of a finely woven, smooth, high quality silk that is very smooth. The zafus have a smaller zippered opening, neatly hidden between pleats, that can be used to remove the cover and wash it. You can also adjust the amount of stuffing in each zafu, thus changing the height and the firmness. This zafu is 15'' in diameter and 6'' in height, and is available in a variety of attractive patterns. Zafus are typically used with a zabuton cushion to provide comfort and support to assist you in your yoga and meditation practice.
