Madder & Magic Meditation Pillow
The fabric used is a hemp and organic cotton blend, that has been hand dyed using Madder Root (Rubia tinctoria) which makes one of the most light-fast of natural dyes that has been in use for thousands of years. The pink/purple colour in this pillow was achieved but shifting the madder root colour with some rusty items & magic. ;)
Stuffed with approx. 5 pounds, of all natural organic buckwheat hulls, which feel firm, while also conforming to your body.
There is a handle on one side for ease of carrying, as well as hiding a wee zipper.
The zipper allows you to adjust the quantities of the hulls so the pillow is perfectly comfortable for you!
Zafus, or meditations pillows are used to gently tilt your tail bone, to allow for a long spine, with less pressure on your lower back while sitting.
Because the buckwheat can be moved around you can also place this pillow on its side and use to sit while on your knees. Check out the video to see some suggestions on how to use!
Spot clean with a damp cloth when needed, & a little eco- friendly soap. allow to dry fully.
need more than a spot clean?
WASH ( its a process!
remove the hulls completely through the zipper under the handle.. Keep the hulls in a large clean bag or box ( to refill use a funnel or a scoop)
Turn the cover inside out to be sure all hulls are removed. Machine wash in cool water and hang to dry out of direct sunlight.
All fabric is hand dyed by myself in small batches using eco friendly plant dyes.
PLEASE NOTE colours look different on different screens. I do my best to have pictures that show the true colour, but shades may be lighter or darker in real life than what is on your screen. >>
