Description

Meditation Cushion. Zafu. Floor Pillow. Natural Linen/Rayon Blend Slub Fabric. Measures approx. 15" W. by 5" D.; 5" purse-weight YKK zipper in the sidewall overlap; has a handle. Filled with approx. 5 lbs of Dakota grown buckwheat hulls. Handmade in the U.S.A. by a small home-based business.

PLEASE NOTE prior to purchase!
ZIPPER/VELCRO CLOSURE LENGTH: all my zafus are made with a 6" long sidewall zipper or velcro opening. Consequently, my zafu covers cannot be used as a slipcover for an existing zafu or zafu form, unless you slip your empty cover into the new one, and fill both simultaneously. They also do not support a solid pillow form, but require loose filling such as buckwheat hulls, cotton, kapok, bamboo, or poly-fiber filling, etc.

fyi: despite what it sounds like rayon is also a natural fiber fabric.

Ships in 1-3 days by USPS Priority Mail.

❀Care suggestions:
Spot clean. When washing becomes necessary empty the buckwheat hulls/filling by unzipping the sidewall opening on the side of the zafu, and pouring the hulls into a container, such as a large bowl or cardboard box. Turn the cover inside out, and shake off any remaining hulls into the container. Pre-soak. Then, hand wash or machine wash in warm water with eco-friendly soap. Air dry, either on a line, on an absorbent towel, or low dryer setting. To refill: use the fingers of one hand to hold the opening open. Fill the cover with the other hand, using something such as a clean yogurt container as a scoop. Caring for your zafu cover can be an exercise in mindful meditation, too. :-)

FAQs

No, my zafu covers are made with a sidewall zipper or velcro closure that is approx. 5-6" in length. They cannot be used as a slipcover for an existing zafu. They are made to be filled with loose filling, that is filled and unfilled manually for cleaning of the cover.
All of my zafu fabrics were washed and dried prior to being made into zafus. This included fabrics that the manufacturer recommends dry cleaning only, because I wanted to make sure the fabrics are washable. To wash the cover unfill it into a large enough container, soak in warm water with mild soap, hand wash or on gentle cycle, rinse, air dry or towel dry. Please do not wash in hot water, use harsh soap, or dry in the dryer.
A number of my zafus are made with repurposed fabrics that previously were clothing, or drapery, or anything else that is suitable for a sitting cushion. These zafus may have indications of their previous incarnation such as stitch marks, creases, an occasional cosmetic blemish such as small spots or stains, or imperfections like a small bunch of heavier thread from when the fabric was being manufactured, sometimes I needed to do some or a lot of piecing to utilize the fabric as much as possible. Nothing that will affect the wearability or durability of the zafu cover.
My buckwheat hull filled zafus ship in 1-3 days, by USPS Priority Mail, which includes a tracking number and insurance. Usually it takes 3-5 days to reach the west coast from south west Florida, excl. holidays and Sundays.

My unfilled zafu covers ship with 1-3 days, by 1st Class USPS Mail. Usually it takes from 7-10 days to reach the west coast from southwest Florida, excl. holidays and Sundays.
Please read over the FAQ's prior to sending a message about a custom request. Maybe the answers you seek have already been provided.

I have made zabuton and zafu sets upon request. I have also been able to fulfill some special requests for zafus and/or zabutons, i.e., using a fabric chosen by the buyer, or provided by the buyer.

Custom requests will have to be pre-paid. I cannot accept returns on custom requests unless the items are saleable to the general public.

The size of my zafus is approx. 15" in diameter by 5" high. They have a 5-6" long sidewall closure of either a heavy purse weight zipper or velcro; and have a carrying handle on the side as well.
The buckwheat hulls I sell are grown in North Dakota. Buckwheat hulls are a hearty crop and as such do not require the use of chemicals in growing/harvesting.

My source is located in North Carolina. They are a business that was established to provide employment for minimally handicapped adults, including one of the owner's daughters.

Depending where you live it is better for you to purchase directly from them, and save the double shipping costs. https://buckwheathull.com/buckwheat-hulls/

To fill a zafu you will need approx. 4.5 - 5.5 lbs. of buckwheat hulls, depending upon your fullness preference. Approx. 2 lbs for a bolster.
Buckwheat hulls are the dry husks/shells of buckwheat & they break down when microwaved. DON'T MICROWAVE. Hulls can have buckwheat hull mites. They like the dust accumulation as the corners of the hulls wear down from normal use. Regular freezing is one way to manage mites in your zafu/bolster pillow. I place my polyfiber bed pillow in the freezer weekly. CLEANING HULLS: dust accumulates in the zafu when the hull corners wear down from normal use. Empty the hulls into a container. Slowly pour the hulls into another container with a fan (set on low) blowing through the hulls to clear away the dust. Or, use a sieve to separate the hulls & dust. Not an indoor task! Periodically you may need to add hulls as normal wear-down of hulls occurs.
Shipping buckwheat hull filled zafus to most places outside the continental U.S. is simply too expensive. Even shipping unfilled zafu covers to, say for example Australia, is very expensive. I can do it, but I believe buying local, if possible, is more in your financial best interest.
