Meditation Cushions - Regular - Organic Plum
Premium meditation cushions designed in the Blue Mountains, Australia, and the creator works closely with a small team in India where each cushion is manufactured ethically and sustainably.
These cushions are a little larger than the average cushion, which is our preference as meditators, weighing approx. 2.5 Kg.
The covers are made from 100% cotton that is both soft and durable. All covers are decorated with an embroidered mandala (except black) and boast a convenient carrying handle and a concealed zipper to easily remove for washing.
The cushions contain an inner pod that can be opened so that you can adjust the volume of the buckwheat hull fillings to suit your specific body shape and needs.
Each cushion is filled with buckwheat hull which is hardy and sustainable, native to sparse and arid areas, without any need of chemicals or pesticides. Originating in China circa 2600BC, it is the world's highest elevation domesticate plant, cultivated in Yunnan on the edge of the Tibetan Plateau (or roof of the world), which has an average altitude of 4500m.
Buckwheat hulls are durable, non-allergenic, and resistant to damp. Because buckwheat doesn’t conduct or reflect heat as much as synthetic fills, it helps prevent sweating, and its cell-like structure enables easy flow through of air when compacted.
