Rebuilding Nepal Through Trade
In the aftermath of the massive earthquake that struck Nepal in April 2015, DharmaCrafts launched a project to aid the victims of this tragic disaster. Due to your support of Nepalese artisans and Rebuilding Nepal through Trade, DharmaCrafts was able to donate $12,224.00 to relief efforts. We are very happy that together we were able to benefit the victims of this terrible disaster. A large percentage of the donation went to Roshi Joan Halifax's Nepal Earthquake Relief Fund (NERF) set up through Upaya Zen Center and to the Save the Children Fund.
Although our Nepal initiative has officially ended, we encourage you to support Nepalese artisans and their families by purchasing products marked with the prayer flag icon shown above.

Zippered covers are washable!
All round buckwheat filled zafu cushions, flat zabuton mats, roll up and go yoga mats, and support cushions come with a zippered cover that may be removed for washing.
Kapok zafus and bench cushions: spot clean only.
Remove zippered cover. Turn cover inside out and machine wash separately in COLD water, gentle cycle, using liquid detergent. Be sure NOT to overload washing machine. Allow enough space for the water to circulate evenly among the covers, ensuring that they will look as good after washing as they did when they were new!
— Buckwheat zafu: Inner shell is also washable. Remove outer cover, unzip shell & pour out buckwheat before washing. Buckwheat hulls should NOT get wet.
— Zabuton mat: Cut the decorative stitch/tack on surface of cushion before removing cover.
— Two-toned cushions: Dry cleaning is recommended to prevent the risk of bleeding.
Hang to dry. Do NOT use dryer. Cotton will shrink in dryer. Iron on cotton setting.
Buckwheat hull and cotton batting filling should NOT get wet.
As with all fine fabrics, avoid direct sunlight. All fabrics will fade over time.

The short answer: All 3 collections are built to last with double-stitched seams, durable cotton duck fabric, and zippered covers.
Classic Collection: We use non-organic, cover fabric in "classic" colors (black brown, midnight blue, royal blue, green, maroon).
Eco Collection: We offer a wide array of bright ORGANIC covers colored using eco-friendly, low impact dyes.
Organic Collection: We use the same outer covers as the Eco Collection plus organic lining fabric and organic cotton batting in the zabuton.
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.
Kapok zafus are not offered as part of a discounted set because hand-stuffing kapok cushions very labor intensive. Since DharmaCrafts pays a living wage, which is much higher than the minimum wage, our costs are too high to offer it as part of the discounted Zafu and Zabuton Set. Also, buckwheat hull filled cushions account for 90% of the zafus that we sell, due to their comfort from day one!
