Ruth creates amazing cushions. I still have my first cushion that has provided over 5 years of support. I reached out to Ruth to see if she could make me another crazy colorful beauty and she delivered. SO grateful for her work and flexibility through the process.

Beautiful! Zafu is extremely well made, wonderful fabrics. My first foray into meditation and this is helped alleviate my concerns about being uncomfortable. I'm big guy, 6'1 300+lbs, and it supports me very well and is just the right size. Makes me wish I could get a matching zabuton.

What a lovely cushion! Very well made with love and care. It arrived fully filled with buckwheat husks. Looking forward to feeling supported in my practice by this cushion for years to come! Bowing and smiling to you, Ruth. :)

We Support Your Practice!
I've been sewing since I was 5 years old. I went into full time custom sewing business in 1987, taking orders for costumes, ladies dresses and formals, and custom menswear. After almost 30 years in business, I retired in 2015. I have sewn meditation cushions since 2001, when I became involved in Zen Buddhism. I have now combined my two interests, using fabric on hand and my skills to design and make meditation cushions that are unlike any others available.

I've been practicing meditation since 1987, when I studied martial arts. I've sewn meditation cushions since 2001, when I made a set for someone teaching meditation in prisons. I'm now retired from my costuming business, sewing cushions full time.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders
Sorry, I am not taking orders for custom cushions at this time. (May 2018)
I try to list the approximate dimensions of each cushion. They are approximate, as buckwheat hulls compact slightly over time. In addition, sizes are slightly adjustable, via zippers that allow you to add or remove buckwheat hulls from the cushion.
Most cushions made with upholstery fabrics have a fabric stain repellent applied at the fabric factory. I apply a stain protector spray (noted in description) to lighter colored cushions to help prevent dirt and stains. Cushions may be cleaned by emptying out the buckwheat and washing them, but I recommend surface cleaning with as little water as possible.
Gift wrapping and packaging
Due to the personal nature of the size and fabric of a meditation cushion, I don't encourage surprise gifts. It might be more fun to tell the intended recipient about your gift and shop with them online. That way they can get a cushion that meets their needs and preferences.
I do not have a piecework sweatshop--it's just me in my sewing room at home. I'm not set up to do production, and I prefer to not take wholesale orders at this time.
