ZafuChi's Shop Announcement

ZafuChi believes quality, product value, & consideration for all beings on the planet are important. ✿✿✿SHIPPING: Buckwheat hull zafus ship USPS Priority Mail, includes insurance. Unfilled zafu covers ship USPS 1st Class Mail. ✿✿✿ZIPPER LENGTH: all zafu zippers are 5-6 inches long, and are placed in the sidewall section of the zafu.

✿✿✿My zafus are made utilizing new fabrics, and repurposed fabric and/or linen clothing sourced at local thrift stores. When using repurposed fabrics the zafus may have indications of a previous life i.e. stitch marks, crease marks, slight flaws or other minor cosmetic issues that will not affect the longevity or usefulness of the zafus. Please kindly take those as part and parcel of previously loved fibers.

✿✿✿CHEMICAL-FREE buckwheat HULLS are sourced from a Carolina-based business that was established by the parent of a minimally handicapped child to provide employment for her daughter and other minimally handicapped adults. The hulls are grown in North Dakota.

✿✿✿NOTE: with the exception of the small adult zafus, all my zafus are made with a 6" long sidewall zipper opening measuring 6" long. Consequently my zafu covers aren't intended for use 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 requires loose filling such as buckwheat hulls (4.5-5.5 lbs.); cotton, kapok, bamboo, or polyfiber filling (2-3 lbs.), etc.

✿✿✿In the event that you are reluctant to purchase a zafu made with only a short side zipper please read the following to see how EASY it actually is to unfill, wash, and refill my zafu covers.

✿✿✿Zafu 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. 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. :-)
