The Zabuton, or "sitting mat," provides essential cushioning for the feet, ankles and legs for everyday sitting or meditation.
Our Zabuton, available in two sizes, may be used alone or they are often placed beneath a meditation bench or a meditation cushion for added comfort, as shown in the pictures.
Choosing a Size
We offer zabutons in medium and large sizes. When you are carrying your zafu to a retreat or local sitting group, you want the most efficient size. A zabuton which offers extra knee room will be more of a challenge to carry. However, if that extra knee room is important to you, buy the large mat. Some meditation halls and temples like our medium zabuton dimensions because it allows more people to meditate in a limited space.
A new zabuton may be exta "poofy", meaning it looks very thick. When you first take it out of the box before sitting on it, it almost looks like a giant throw pillow. When you sit on it, it goes down to a normal thickness. Within a short time the mat will compress to about two inches thick and consistent all around. It usually takes about fourty hours of sitting for the zabuton sitting mat to find its true nature.
Our zabutons have been tested for 28 years to reach the perfect balance of all-round comfort. The measurements cited here are taken after the zabuton is completely 'broken in'. You will need to occassionally fluff your zabuton (takes a few seconds) to help it maintain its optimal consistency.
Replacement covers are available in 6 organic cotton colors.
