Announcement   Hello, and THANK YOU for supporting small businesses everywhere. Click/tap on Read More for more info. See Item sections (on left) for shopping ease.

Use Coupon Code THANKYOU for a 10% discount at checkout, prior to shipping. ($100. minimum)

✿SHIPPING: Buckwheat hull zafus ship USPS Priority Mail, which includes insurance. Unfilled zafu covers ship USPS 1st Class Mail. Postage overage for multiple purchases will be refunded via your payment method, at the time I purchase the postage.

✿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 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. To refill: use the fingers of one hand to hold the opening open. With the other hand, use a funnel or something such as a clean yogurt container as a scoop. Caring for your zafu cover can be an exercise in mindful meditation, too. :-)

✿WORK ETHOS: Providing quality, product value, & consideration for all beings on the planet are important to me. 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.

Thank you very much for stopping in! Namaste! Ho'oponopono!

I absolutely love my meditation cushion. It is lovely to sit on for long or short meditation sessions. I love the pattern of fabric and love even more that it was upcycled. Thank you!!

Peace is every step.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Little did I know it then but my love affair with all things linen started when Grandma Elsie came to live with us when I was a young girl. She regaled us with stories of her life growing up on a produce farm in Red Run. One of the things she told us about was how they grew flax, processed it into linen thread or yarn, and made fabric, and then clothing and household items with the fabric. She still had some bureau scarves made of that linen. When I close my eyes I can still see it, and feel it.

My love of sewing began by watching my mother making clothing and school dresses for us when I was a little girl. I've made clothing, household items, reupholstered furniture for 20 years, made many many quilts, and now meditation cushions. Sewing is what I "come home to". It's my "thang".

My personal failure to fulfill my parents one and only dream for me of getting married to a farmer by age 20 or 21 and have 8-12 children did have some considerable influence in my life journey. I had no intention of becoming a dried up, cranky old spinster who could barely justify her existence (at least in the world I grew up in), by the useless consumption of valuable resources that viable humans need. I was inexplicably drawn to the teachings of Paramahamsa Yogananda in my twenties. "Self-realization" was a scary term! It seemed like the utmost in heresy to me at the time. Well, that was a long time ago, and it has been quite the journey to this place called "NOW".

One of my hopes or dreams for the future is to be in a position of running a local meditation center. Meanwhile, I am attempting to live a mindful life with the company of two very precious feline friends.

If you ever visit Sarasota please schedule time to visit Siesta Key Beach. It is rated among the world's top ten most beautiful beaches.
