Zabuton with kimono fabric
A Zabuton is suitable as a seat cushion in front of low tables, as a cushion on Zaisu (see our range of floor chairs) (link) or as a mat for meditation,
We offer our zabuton in the traditional size 55 x 59 x 4,5 cm, whereby the height is slightly condensed over time (max. 10 %). For the decorative strip we use old kimono fabrics from Japan, which were purchased from trade stocks.
The availability of a certain design is limited by the quantity of fabric on the rolls, i.e. a few individual pieces are made.
As these are remnants, the components of the composition is no longer always available. As far as known, the material is indicated on the individual product pages.
If required, we will be happy to send you small fabric samples free of charge so that you can judge the colour and texture yourself.
In contrast to the cotton fillings of traditional pillows, we have opted for virgin sheep's wool. It does not condense so much during use, comes from Europe and creates a warm, airy, dry sitting climate.
Our Zabuton are produced in small quantities in an experienced wool bedding factory in Chiemgau/Bavaria.
