Our Smile Cushions, as well as our other meditation pillows, are Made in America. The Smile Cushion when combined with a support cushion makes an incredible back-bend, back-stretching prop. In yoga, this pose is called the Whale. This stretch will open your back and chest and allow more pain-free sitting. Other props of this type cost hundreds of dollars. Fabric is 100% cotton lightweight canvas filled with buckwheat hulls or kapok. Kapok is a natural fiber filling, resembling milkweed. Kapok filled crescents provide a firm support without being uncomfortably hard. Buckwheat hulls, an alternative natural material used to fill our crescents, are lightweight, very maleable and conform easily to a comfortable sitting position. The hulls themselves allow the cushion to breathe, and so can minimize absorption of odors. Both buckwheat and kapok are grown without herbicides and pesticides. Hidden opening behind handle allows for addition or removal of stuffing material to adjust to individual height/density. Removable covers available for easier washing.
