Artwork Description: This gorgeous zafu has several layers of artistically arranged fabrics on the top. Each strip of fabrics was cut and machine-quilted with a cream colored organic cotton quilting thread. If you look carefully, you notice how the lotus flower inspired colors, patterns, and fabrics "bloom" out towards the edge of the zafu. Embroidered onto the handle are plum colored "starbursts" symbolizing radiating energy. This zafu's color scheme features rich magentas, mustards, and shades of black and gray, with pops of light pink, violet, and white. It would be a gorgeous addition to your home yoga studio or meditation space.
Zig Zag Zafus are functional works of art, mindfully and lovingly handmade for meditation practice, yoga, or for sitting on the floor.
They conform to your posture providing excellent support while reducing strain to your lower back and joints. Using a zafu to sit on the floor can help you maintain, and even increase, lifelong mobility and flexibility.
Zig Zag Zafus are filled with organic buckwheat hulls, made from a mosaic of cotton fabrics, and double stitched for durability. They also have a handle for easy portability.
What’s especially nice about these zafus is that they were designed to hold a separate pillow form that contains the buckwheat hulls. The form has a velcro closure on it so you can easily add or remove buckwheat hulls to raise or lower the height of your pillow. To access the pillow form, simply flip the pillow over and unzip the brass upholstery zipper and take off the cover. The cover itself is machine washable!
The inside of the top of the zafu is lined with a soft batting to make sitting for long periods more comfortable. The buckwheat hulls inside the zafu are organically grown in the USA and purchased from Life Experiences, Inc., an organization in North Carolina that provides unique job opportunities to adults with disabilities.
You should look forward to sitting on your pillow daily and be inspired to practice mindfulness each time you see it, so choose the zafu that best represents YOU. Each zafu is unique in color scheme and theme. Check out our custom listing if you don’t see a ready-made zafu that is perfect for you. Custom orders are our favorite!
