Why We Love it

Accent your home with zen and harmony with this shibori black zabuton cushion from Kyoto’s finest zabuton maker, Takaokaya, founded in 1919.

Takaokaya’s zabuton cushions are a treasure of centuries-old Japanese craftsmanship and tradition. Employing expertise passed down through the generations, each zabuton cushion is handcrafted by master artisans to ensure every step contributes to impeccable comfort and firmness.

This attention to detail is what sets this authentic zabuton cushion apart from others. The 4 inches of handmade padding is carefully layered in a gentle curve to offer you essential support for your posture, when sitting or kneeling for any period of time.

Following the Kyoto tradition, the center of the zabuton cushion is finished with sampo-toji, a three-pronged stitch. The forward-pointing stitch enables you to distinguish between the front and the back of the cushion. The corner tassels, evolved from age-old Japanese custom, act to prevent harmful energy from disturbing one’s state of mindfulness.

This coal black zabuton features a field of white circular flower-like designs created by the shibori ‘tie dye’ process originating in the 6th century, where fabric is manipulated with folds and twists, and bound and knotted.

Takaokaya has created masterfully handcrafted zabuton and seating cushions in Kyoto since 1919. It is highly regarded for producing some of the finest zabuton cushions in the world.

Having recently celebrated its centennial anniversary, Takaokaya’s legacy lies in its unparalleled craftsmanship, made by master crafts people using tradtional techniques passed down from generation to generation.

Takaokaya combines Kyoto’s centuries-old textile expertise and the Japanese art of kutsurogi (a state of complete relaxation) to bring balance and comfort to contemporary lifestyles and harmonize any living and work space.

Takaokaya prides itself on handcrafting the zabuton cushions one at a time. No two pieces are ever alike due the multi-step process of textile dyeing that creates subtle differences along the fabric grain.

This prized craftsmanhsip remains unchanged over a century ago and backed with a genuine philosophy of "simply bringing a smile on everyone's face,” the state achieved when resting with a zabuton cushion from Takaokaya.
