Hattanban Zabuton
Maker: Takuya Niwa (Niwa Futon-ten)

The Hattanban Zabuton (sitting cushion) is a large size suitable for comfortably kneeling or sitting during meditation practice. This size was traditionally offered to guests for use when they visited a Japanese home. The zabuton is hand made using the same techniques as Niwa Futon-ten's prize winning futons. Carefully selected cottons are combined in a unique ratio, before being crafted by hand into a beautiful shape that emphasizes comfort.
