A zafu is commonly referred to a cushion that supports you. At Catspaw Studio we fill ours with organic buckwheat hulls so its supports and conforms to your body. If you practice yoga or meditation or just simply like to sit on the floor, it can help take the press off your back and make it easier to sit for an extended period of time. You can use it a variety of ways.
A translation of zafu is a cushion for sitting, where “za” means “sitting” or “to sit,” and “fu” means “cushion, bolster, a long pillow or cushion that provides support”; it can also mean “strengthen, reinforce, boost, fortify, or renew.”
We use a zafu to support us. We also want to have support and good posture as explained by WindMind.
Whether you meditate, sitting on the floor every day is a good habit to get into. At Catspaw Studio we use festive fabrics that inspire with the hope that you well take a moment.

Because every body needs support – but the bigger question is what do we need? It is worth while to ask and ponder and be in that ambiguous state.
Encouraging you on your journey. Learning to pause is the the key to sitting with your truth. Create your space with things
that inspire and support. Cushions, original art and a journal to write your thoughts.
