A breakthrough in comfort! Introduced in 1996, the Buckwheat Hull Zafu is our best-selling product. While still providing all the support of a traditional kapok-filled zafu, the Zippered Buckwheat Hull Zafu conforms more readily to each individual's shape. It's like sitting on sand at the beach — the hulls are distributed beneath you, just as you want them.

Filling: Approx. 4 1/2 lbs. buckwheat hulls enclosed in a zippered inner shell made of organic cotton, making it easy to add/remove buckwheat.
Dimensions: 15" dia., 5 1/2" h
About Our Buckwheat Hulls: Our buckwheat hulls come from buckwheat that is grown in the U.S. and in Eastern Europe. We purchase U.S. grown buckwheat hulls whenever the supply is available. Buckwheat is a unique crop because it is grown without herbicides or pesticides. We do, however, purchase certified organic buckwheat hulls whenever they are available.
