Sitting on the floor with a straight spine and no back support isn't easy. However, a straight, unsupported spine keeps you more alert and energized during meditation and yoga practice.
Zafu cushion allows your pelvis to tilt forward so that your sacrum is in its neutral position. This allows the rest of your spinal curves to fall into place.

Ideal for meditation and relaxation
100% Organic cotton
A zafu is a round meditation cushion with gathered sides. Its curved edges allow your legs to drop off the edges at the hip joints so that your knees are lower than your hips.
When your knees are lower than your hips, it’s easier for your spine to maintain its natural curves.
Zafu mediation cushions have one advantage over moon-shaped cushions. You can sit on it in two ways: with the zafu under your pelvis in Sukhasana (Cross-Legged Pose) or with the zafu under your hips and in between your knees in Vajrasana (Diamond Pose).
This means that people with hips that don’t easily externally rotate for Sukhasana can still use a Zafu meditation cushion for support.
If you’re thinking of starting a meditation practice or want to make your yoga sitting practice more relaxed and easy, try a Zafu pillow. You just might sit a little easier.
Material and filling of Zafu meditation cushion
The Zafu pillow is filled with buckwheat hulls containing theanine. It is a substance that hinders the development and reproduction of dust mites and bacteria.
It adapts to the sitting position of the person, absorbs perspiration, and neutralizes harmful electromagnetic radiation.
The outer layer is 100% made of organic cotton. Our cotton is GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified.
The label was founded in 2006 and aimed to become the international standard for organic cotton.
It’s not only about the organic production and processing of the fabrics but also the fair and humane treatment of people in the production chain.
Therefore, it is an inclusive label that can ensure consumers of an ethical production process that protects both the earth and the workers.
Use and care
The outer and inner fabric of the Zafu pillow contains strong zippers that will last longer than standard ones.
The zipping area of the zafu meditation cushion is long enough to make it easy to remove the outer pillow for cleaning and put it back when required without damaging the fabric.
Besides, due to the availability of zippers, you can easily increase or reduce the amount of buckwheat hulls in the cushion.
The height of the Samarali Zafu cushion is 17 cm, but if you have been meditating for a while or practice yoga regularly, this will be quite high.
That’s why we offer cushions where you can take the filling out (and in) yourself. As a result, it will help you adjust the height based on your comfort and keep your posture straight.
Our meditation cushions are easy to carry anywhere due to their portable handle at the front of the cushion.
To Wash: remove the outer pillow. Machine wash on cold with similar colors. Do not tumble dry. Warm iron.
The outer and inner cushions of the Zafu meditation cushion are ethically produced in India and assembled in the Netherlands.
The packaging, too, has a significant impact on sustainability and matters to us as the final product. All our products are paper wrapped and shipped in paper-based packaging.
Since we aim to minimize our carbon footprint, we constantly look for solutions to bring us to a carbon-neutral state.
We, therefore, encourage you not to throw anything into the trash; everything is perfectly recyclable.
