Our zabuton is filled with natural kapok. The kapok is packed to provide solid support, and yet is soft and comfortable. The outer cover is made of durable cotton twill fabric and has a zipper along one length so that it can be easily removed and washed. Inside the cover, the kapok is enclosed in a casing. Each zabuton is approximately 30" long by 28" wide and may fits people up to 5' 10" tall.
|Sturdy and comfortable cover||Approximately 30" long|

I am a repeat customer. There is good reason for returning to zafustore.com. As an ordained priest and head teacher for several Zen groups, I have tried many zafus and zabutons from various makers. These are, by far, the best. They are uniform, durable, stable and comfortable. My previously ordered zabutons have far outlasted many others from other makers. Thank you for a quality and affordable essential piece of equipment.

Great comfort and value. Very easy on my knees.
Im 5'8" and the mat just fits comfortably.

This is the second zabuton that my family has ordered from zafustore.com. We use both daily, sometimes for up to an hour at a time. The quality of the cushion is wonderful, very sturdy and comfortable. The color is rather pleasing (both of our cushions are sand color) and the filling/loft of the cushion is thick and comfortable. In the 2.5 years between the purchase of our two mats, I can honestly say that not too much compression has occurred. The filling is holding up well. Both mats are medium sized, and for us that size is appropriate. I am 5'6" and my husband is 5'9".
I would recommend this mat for use by anyone who sits. (On a side note, it also doubles as a very lovely cat bed.)

I purchased this zabuton along with a large buckwheat zafu. It is well made, very comfortable, and the kapok fibers show no early signs of compression or wear. Be aware that it is a tiny bit on the small side. I'm not tall, but I sit Burmese style and my forward leg barely has enough room unless I position the zafu off the rear edge of the zabuton. If you're on the tall side or limited in flexibility you might opt for a larger size.

This cushion is a nice size and well made. My only advise in shopping for one is that the color is a bit different, a little darker than what appeared online. I like it though, maybe even a little better than the online one. I got the "clay". Overall I am glad I got it and am going to pass the company's name to a friend because it is good quality and the best price I found for zabutons.

Hi, my name is Nick and I am from Long Beach CA. I decided to give meditation a try and saw a video on the things that you need. I purchased a my very first zabuton and I think it is great. My back doesn't hurt while sitting at all. I recommend this. Thank you zafustore.com!

We are really enjoying the zafu and zabuton cushions we just purchased. They are exactly what we needed. Thank you for the super fast shipping.

The cushioning is just right, your back will slouch if its too soft, your butt will hurt if its too hard!
I can sit in the lotus posture and meditate on this for an hour without any discomfort.
