Meditation Cushion Eco dyed.
Made with hand dyed hemp/organic cotton canvas, filled with organic Canadian buckwheat hulls.
The hemp, has been hand dyed using locally foraged Black Walnuts. Juglans nigra, the eastern American black walnut, is a species of deciduous tree in the walnut family, Juglandaceae, native to North America. I collect the walnuts during the fall and save to use for dye through out the year.
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.
Spot clean with a damp cloth when needed, allow to dry.
need more than a spot clean?
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. Because of the nature of eco dyeing, some irregularities can occur in the colour, this is part of the unique beauty of plant dyed fabrics. To maintain the life of your plant dyed item, store out of direct sunlight and wash gently with cool water.
