catspaw cushions

Catspaw Cushions is a Colorado company that makes locally handcrafted Meditation, Yoga, and Floor Cushions. Fabric is chosen to inspire and support.

Catspaw Cushions  are filled with traditional organic USA-harvested buckwheat hulls.  All cushions are filled fairly full, but they have zippers so you can add or remove buckwheat for the right height.  Each zafu has a handle.  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 to strengthen, reinforce, boost, fortify and renew.”
