Plant Dyed Hemp Meditation Cushion
One of a Kind, Handmade and naturally dyed hemp/organic cotton buckwheat hull Zafu Meditation pillow.
The fabric used is a hemp and organic cotton blend, that has been hand dyed Osage Orange wood chip and locally foraged Sumac Leaves ( Rhus Typhina)
Osage Orange tree Maclura pomifera was originally planted to help with wind erosion, the wood was used to build fences and was hard enough for wagon wheels. Osage has overgrown many areas and is being cut down for firewood. We buy our Osage wood chip from a Canadian Company that has suppliers who rescues these logs and chips them for dye use.
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.
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.
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.
