Zabuton: sitting mat or cushion


Zabuton is a small futon (bedding) that is placed underneath the legs or buttocks when sitting on the floor. Zabuton is very similar to the cushions used in the West, but zabuton is supposed to help one feel more comfortable and prevent the body temperature from dropping when sitting on the floor. Zabuton is considered a part of the overall interior decoration scheme, and its exterior covering can be changed to suit the changes of the seasons.
