Our zafu is a round traditional meditation cushion with pleated sides. The cover is made of durable cotton twill fabric. We hand stuff our zafus with natural kapok so that they will not collapse after a few sittings. All our zafus are double-stitched for extra strength and come with a carrying handle. Each zafu is approximately 14" in diameter and 8" in height and 3.5 lbs in weight.

In 20+ years of sitting meditation, I have tried all kinds of cushions of various shapes and fill-materials --- and have found that what supports me best is a very firmly kapok-stuffed zafu. I used to make them at a Zen monastery and I know it's very difficult to get all that kapok in there evenly. The ZafuStore has done it better than I had imagined possible.
I am only 5' 2", and the medium cushion fits me fine. It came looking like a very cute ball, so the height was initially a bit high for me, but it will flatten to fit with use. The cover is beautifully made. The mindfulness and care in their work is evidenced even in the "small" things like the astonishing, beautiful, meticulous way they sealed the plastic bag that protected the zafu. I've never seen anything like it.
They were also really conscientious about letting me know the status of my order. My sense is it mattered to them as much as it mattered to me... which is a lot.
Thank you, ZafuStore... your embodiment of your [spiritual] practice is inspiring.

I haven't used a kapok zafu before. Had read they were good, and indeed I'm very happy with it. Use it every day!

The zafu supports my back and is quite comfortable. It is sturdy and well stitched together. I expect to be using it for many years.

Great zafu - well-made, sturdy, and comfortable. Shipped immediately (had it within three days of ordering, via FedEx ground). Highly recommended.
