I bought my cushion set quite a few years ago, and really need to replace it. Neither of the covers is washable, and our dog drools on everything. Also, the zabuton in particular is just horribly lumpy and misshapen and uncomfortable. Some spots my ankles are too high, and others they touch the bare floor. The fill in it is just not ideal at all.
I need something (both zafu and zabuton) that has removable, washable covers, and a zabuton that has a more consistent fill. I'd prefer a thicker one, as our sangha location has a stone tile floor. So something maybe 4 inches thick. Any recommendations? Even just preferred materials would be a start. Our sangha leader has a lovely buckwheat one that I love, but he got it in Vietnam, lol.
Disclaimer: I know it isn't necessary, it is just what I prefer. Chairs and the like do not work for me and I prefer to sit on the floor. I like the seiza benches, but I have missing cartilage in my knee and cannot sit in that position because there is too much pressure on my kneecap. So, cushion set it is. I often use it for my normal seating, as it is far better for my back than the couch, and I use it during my writing time as well. So it gets a lot of use and I'd like a good quality one as a result.
