This pleated round Zafu meditation cushion traditionally associated with Zen meditation is filled with kapok. These deluxe Zafu meditation cushions have a linen covered interior and a Cotton Twill fabric cover that is removable and washable.
Available with either Kapok or Buckwheat Hull fill.
Kapok is a fluffy cotton-like material that comes from the Kapok trees of Asia and in some regions of Southern United States and Central and South America. These cushions are lighter and easier to carry than buckwheat cushions. The kapok has a spongy but firm feel to it. However, it can be somewhat like sitting on a ball and feel a bit roly poly or wobbly. Over time, it will soften and you can speed this up by kneeling or standing on them. Kapok has been the traditional fill for Zafu meditation cushions for thousands of years.
Buckwheat Hulls are the non-food husk of the buckwheat grain. Buckwheat cushions feel more firm than Kapok cushions, but conform to the shape of the body and create a comfortable and stable platform and provide a grounded feel. Buckwheat Hull cushions weigh about twice as much as kapok cushions.
