Exquisite Details About Our Products

The Exquisite Details Set Inner Space bolsters apart ...

All of our bolsters are hand rolled FIRST (THEN stuffed) in Knoxville, TN with dense sheets of cotton batting to give the ideal amount of sturdy and comfortable support.

We honor the ‘princess & the pea’ sensitivity that yogis develop by carefully rolling each bolster and being compulsive about quality control. Because the bolsters are rolled, they have less lumpiness or uneven spots, have more uniform distribution of density and weight and tend to compress with usage with a natural form mapped to the human body.

Our bolsters are durable. They are ideal for for home use or studio use and will last for many years in even the most demanding studio settings. We know this because they have been tested in these settings for over 14 years.

Each bolster features a 100% cotton, removable, washable cover with no zippers - Pune (India) style. We use drawstrings only. This type of cover may be harder to make, but it is much easier to get on and off than zippered covers. Our bolsters have no metal, just cottony goodness. Because of this, you can use the bolster in any direction and on any side. And ... you can keep it clean!

Seams are intentionally placed opposite the drawstring so the fabric can more evenly distribute around the bolster and so that the inner and outer seams are not on the same side. It is for your comfort and relaxation, because we know the difference. 

Our bolsters are very helpful for postures relating to meditation and rest, but can also be used for support in most styles of yoga.

Crescent Zafu

Our crescent zafu has been refined through the years. As yogis, we prefer a crescent shape to a round zafu so that we have enough support for our thigh bone, but not too far down the leg so as to "stop" the freedom in the hip. We know the difference so you don't have to be bothered with it. The shape, height, and density make this the perfect cushion. You will feel grounded and stable. We hand fill each zafu cushion with buckwheat hulls. They will compress some with use and time. We chose buckwheat hulls, the outer chaff of the buckwheat grain, because the small, saucer-shaped, lightweight hull conforms fluidly to the shape of your body. 

We use a zipper hidden beneath the back handle so you can full the cushion with more buckwheat (or empty if it is too full). We ship a generously stuffed zafu and we have debated around the warehouse about this. We have erred on filling it full in case you don't have buckwheat available.  All seams are reinforced for extra strength.  At least part of the zafu is made with a heavier weight brushed cotton twill. And …did we mention….they are beautiful. We predict you will notice the exquisite detail and quality immediately.The zafu can also be turned on it's side to sit in a kneeling position or for more height. You can not find a better designed meditation cushion out there.

Dimensions: 15" diameter x 7" height
Weight: 4.5  lbs.


Zabuton

Our Zabuton is sized a little differently than most.  We wanted it easier to transport so we made it a little smaller. We also don't like lumpy zabutons (stability rocks!) so we designed our zabuton to have an even layer of our cotton batting sheets. 

We went the extra mile to include an inner muslin liner, so you can wash the outer cover. As experienced meditators, we know a zabuton can get the brunt of the feet and shins and, well, it is better to be able to clean it. Both the inner muslin liner and outer cover have velcro closures (no zippers!). We find this envelopes the zabuton more evenly and cleanly and we prefer that. Both cushions  are made of durable 100% super soft, brushed cotton twill fabric with reinforced seams. 

Dimensions:  33" L x 27" W x 4" height 
Weight: 6.2 lbs.
