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

The Zen Zabuton is the largest of Takuya Niwa's Zabuton, suitable for comfortably kneeling or sitting during meditation practice or ceromonies. This large size is commonly used by Buddhist monks at temples and shrines. The zabuton (sitting cushions) are 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.
