Item Description


Handwoven, sewn, and filled with organic buckwheat hulls, this "Foliage" design, prism-shaped zafu from Zafutopia is designed to accompany your everyday life.

This ritual object will provide you with the stability needed to maintain your sitting position during your meditation, play or relaxation sessions. Bring it to your next silent retreat, put it in a quiet place, make it an object of comfort and relaxation.

Zafutopia was born in October 2017. It was presented for the first time at Expo Yoga in Montreal in February 2018. This new product presents a unique, ergonomic, stable design that will accompany your meditation sessions, but also your games, your family moments and the major stages of your life.

Zafutopia's Valerie wove her first zafu when she started practising mindfulness meditation about three years ago. She did some research on its shape, its design, its ergonomics. She wanted to propose an original model that corresponds to the characteristics of the traditional zafu without reproducing an existing model. The prism shape that she created was warmly welcomed by the yoga and meditation community at Expo Yoga.

Says Valerie, "Zafu is for me the perfect surface to express my creativity and my passion for weaving. It is a meaningful object. Each stage of its manufacture gives me satisfaction and pride, because this object brings real well-being to those who adopt it. It is a story of love and passion that lives in the quest for authenticity. My wish is that it brings you as many benefits as it has provided me."
