The Zafu and Zabuton set is made with 100% cotton covers and filled with pure backwheat hulls from buckwheat cultivated in a rural area of Poland.
Buckwheat hulls pillows and mattresses offer the correct support for your muscular system to protect you from the muscle, joint and bone pain that are the result of incorrect body position during sleep and rest.
The set, composed of one buckwheat zafu pillow and one buckwheat zabuton mattress, is an exquisite meditation cushion set. Zafu is a round seat cushion used for meditation. The shape of the pillow allows you to sit cross-legged comfortably. By sitting on this special pillow your buttocks will be higher than your knees when it’s placed on the floor/ground/mattress. This helps you to assume the correct position for meditation.
Because the buckwheat zafu pillow is so comfortable and firm, it can also be used for sitting. The filling is natural and the cover is made of high quality 100% cotton. The pillow is firm but it adapts to the shape of the body, greatly increasing comfort when sitting.
The buckwheat mattress, zabuton, is a square mattress made for sitting. It was created in Japan where it’s still used today in places where seating is on the floor. Found throughout Japan, it’s often used by the Zen monks in combination with zafu which is placed on top of a zabuton.
The mattress is firm and filled with buckwheat hulls that delicately massage your muscles and joints. The cover is made of 100% high quality cotton and it’s available in 10 different colours.
