Our Deluxe Zabuton is made with an extra layer of wool batting for greater cushion and loft and ultimate meditation comfort. If you are meditating on a hard surface or have particular trouble with your ankles or knees we highly recommend our Deluxe Zabuton as it provides extra padding for your knees and ankles. If you meditate on surface that is already padded, such as carpet, or that travel a lot with your meditation gear you may wish to consider our Regular Zabuton. Our Zabutons are hand made using the same fabrics as our meditation benches. The eco-wool filling creates a light resilient meditation cushion perfect for under a meditation bench or pillow.
Our Deluxe Zabuton is approximately 29" by 29" with 3.5" - 4"" of loft and weighs approximately 3 pounds.
Left to Right: Cotton Colors: Black, Burgundy, Sage, Chocolate, Golden Wheat, Natural, Purple, Blue, Navy, Light Blue.
Silk Colors: Forest, Teal, Indigo (purple).
Aside from adding loft, comfort and resilience to the cushion, meditating on wool has been recommended by saints and rishis through the ages for it's quality of insulating the meditator from subtle energies emanating from the earth which tend to hold the consciousness down.
Our Zabutons are much lighter and more portable than others because of the wool filling we use.

The Zabuton was everything I'd hoped for and more. It is a great size, filling just right and the color is really rich and beautiful. I am proud to have it in the corner of my bedroom along with matching crescent meditation pillow. The make meditation even more inviting. Now I have an elegant "place" that no longer looks like a pile of pillows and folded blankets!

I've reached a point in my life where I need padding under my meditation bench. This Deluxe Zabuton is the best I've every found. I can sit for a long time without feeling pressure or pain in my legs. Thank you!

Especially because I occasionally sit for long periods of time, I am truly grateful for this zabuton. It's simply the best I've found (or even used while on retreats/at centers). It feels springy and full of life, but soft and supportive at the same time. Compared to kapoc-filled zabutons, this one definitely takes the cake.
When I was looking around for a new zabuton a couple years ago, I was elated to discover this website, since this is basically my dream zabuton -- wool-filled and with the possibility to select silk as the fabric. The craftsmanship is amazing, the quality is really outstanding, and I am so happy with mine. The wool holds its loft well over time, too. The only thing that could make this better is if ahimsa silk was cost-effective as a cover option.
I've given these as a gift several times, and the recipients in all instances were completely delighted. :>)
