While I was shopping, I saw a lot of fancy silk and brocade zafus (for quite a lot of money) and thought all along that that just didn't seem very practical. Pretty, yes, but for a pillow that's going to be living on the floor in house with 3 dogs and a couple of rambunctious kids, that just seemed to be asking for trouble. The covering is a nice heavy canvas in a solid purple color (lots of other colors are available). Attached to one side is a sturdy nylon band carrying handle. There is a vertical zipper close by the handle so that you could remove some of the buckwheat hulls if desired for a more yielding feel. Or add some back, I guess.
My only (relatively minor) issue is that the canvas cover you sit on is not removable for cleaning. There is no inner liner that actually holds the hulls. If you unzip the zipper all of the hulls could potentially escape. So casual cleaning is realistically not going to happen. If some dog vomits on it (it could happen, its happened before in my house) then I could just buckle down and do just that: empty all the hulls into a bucket, wash or dry clean and then refill.
Oh well, a relatively minor caveat for a great, highly functional meditation pillow.
They need to seal the buckwheat in a seperate bag inside the canvas
I was also pleased to see that my three year old daughter enjoys the set too, not for meditation, but as a simple "bean bag" style seat she can use, so she uses it almost as often as I do. After two months of owning it, the product continues to be pretty useful. Thanks!
Last week however, I picked up a book I left on the tatami platform, where this Zafu rested. It was crawling with these bugs. Upon further inspection, my zafu was overrun with a layer of these mites, and they were crawling everywhere in the room. I opened the zafu and realized that these must have hatched from eggs inside the husks and were coming out through the fabric by the thousands. I ended up dumping the filling, spending a day cleaning and vaccuuming my study room, and having to wash the zabuton underneath, which is now ruined. So I'm down a Zafu and zabuton because of the dismal quality of this product. And I spent an afternoon and evening removing this bug infestation from my place. If that's what you are into, then by all means take your chances with this product. Otherwise, LOOK ELSEWHERE. Now I need to find another zafu I can trust, or some filling to put into the empty canvas bag which I washed and was able to save.... I wish I had three thumbs so I could give this thing 3 thumbs down. I don't even know if I should request a replacement from these guys since they might send me another infested pillow.... NOT WORTH IT.

I did not believe the other reviews about this product having bugs in it, so I bought it. But little black creatures came out for air, so I had to return it.Published 29 days ago by Etten_Otram
