Feel the Zen Ink Black
Feel the Zen collection is an artist's palette of painstakingly designed Zen meditation cushions designed in Kyoto, Japan. Formerly the Imperial capital of Japan for one thousand years and home to more than 1,600 Buddhist temples scattered throughout the prefecture of Kyoto. The oldest among them being Kenninji, founded by the monk Yousai of the Zen Rinzai sect.
Each cushion is ergonamically designed by Japanese artisans to support the positions of your pelvic and hip bones, and spinal cord to achieve the correct sitting balance when
meditating. Hand sewn as one piece embroidered with the Japanese kanji character for Zen (禅). Generously filled with firm Indian Silk wadding that will not disproportionately flatten or deflate, when sat on compared to off-the-shelf mass produced cushions.

Cleaning & Care Instructions
Do not machine wash. For best results wipe your cushion with cold water with a well wrung cloth. Use only water-soluble cleaning products (Ph-neutral, alcohol-free, mild and odorless soaps). Do not use any petroleum, acetone, or solvent-based cleaners. Avoid placing your cushion in direct sunlight or near any intense source of artificial lighting. If you use your cushion for outdoors meditation make sure to place a vinyl sheet under the cushion to keep it from getting wet.
