Zabuton (座布団) is a traditional Japanese cushion with nearly 1000 years of history. Originally, zabuton indicated high status and were only used by people such as the emperor and members of the imperial court, or most revered of Buddhist monks. Now, zabuton is part of daily life and is central to the Japanese omotenashi culture of hospitality. Our Kyoto zabuton is made true to the traditions of our unique city but have been also been adapted for greater stability and comfort.

Hikizome (lit. ‘pull dye’) is a traditional Japanese dye technique in which fabric is stretched tight, water is applied and then dye is applied by hand with a brush. Painting the dye into the wet fabric causes it to blur. This technique can also be known as bokashizame, (lit. ‘blur dye’). We have 2 colors for this Hikizome collection. Both name comes from famous sightseeing spots in Kyoto. These will be a great combination with Kyoto zabuton.
