ZafuChi's Shop Announcement

ZafuChi believes Quality, product Value, and consideration for all beings on the planet/universe are important. ZafuChi specializes in providing ECO-CONSCIOUS meditation cushions/zafus and unfilled zafu covers. To simplify your search for meditation cushions made using Eco-Conscious fabrics (repurposed fabrics or new fabrics sourced at thrift stores) see my "Eco-Conscious Zafu" section: https://www.etsy.com/shop/ZafuChi?section_id=17603986&ref=shopsection_leftnav_1 For meditation cushion made using new, store bought fabrics see my "New Fabric Zafu" section: https://www.etsy.com/shop/ZafuChi?section_id=16245828&ref=shopsection_leftnav_2

❀Some of my zafus are one-off, and OOAK (one of a kind). They 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.

❀My CHEMICAL-FREE buckwheat hulls source is 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 5-6" long sidewall zipper opening measuring only 5-6" 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 (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. :-)
