We are a small family business with two generations working in harmony to make the best, most supportive, comfortable and healthy meditation cushions. We have been designing and manufacturing high quality meditation cushions and massage mats for over 25 years. We have built a solid network of trusted suppliers who provide us with the purest, highest quality certified organic and natural fibers available. Our mission is to provide you with the best and most comfortable products. Besides handmaking meditation cushions we also have been manufacturing futons, mattresses, pillows and bedding since 1981. We started out as Bright Future Futon and have evolved into Sachi Organics. For more information on Sachi Organics please visit our website.
Meditation is a simple way to help strengthen the mind and body. Our products facilitate and support meditation. Blue Lotus Yoga Essentials was started in 1986 by Lois Hamamoto who was making futons and pillows at home. A customer wanted a zafu, and with instructions from The Last Whole Earth Catalog, Lois made one. Today the futon and pillow business has grown into an organic pillow, mattress and bedding company with two retail stores and a bustling wholesale business. The single zafu that started Blue Lotus has grown into a full line of meditation cushions and massage and yoga mats. Our products can be found in Zen centers, bookstores, yoga studios, places of healing and quiet corners of living rooms throughout the country and around the world.
Meditation is an important part of our lives and we are blessed to be in the business of designing and manafacturing meditation products that help and heal people. We use the best quality materials we can find and precisely produce our products with the highest standards.
Our Boutique Production Studio
We produce everything on premises at our studio/retail location in the Historic Nob Hill neighborhood in the heart of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Fabrics and raw materials come in the back door and leave as finished products out the front door. Space can be tight at times, but we are masters using what we have to get the job done. Our enclosed courtyard zen garden features a weeping Japanese cherry tree this is a great spot to take a break in between filling orders.
Our Commitment to the Planet
We are committed to a cleaner healthier planet. By combining our retail and production into one building we reduced our fuel consumption and the overall ecological footprint of our business. We produce our products in the most energy efficient ways available to us. We recycle as much as we can in order to lower our impact on landfills.
Our Natural Fiber Raw Materials
Over the last 30 years we have built a solid network of trusted suppliers. This ensures that we use the purest, highest quality raw materials availble on the market. We source our raw materials domestically as much as possible. We support American farmers and have been buying our cotton from the same supplier for over two decades. We use only Organic and Natural fibers to fill our cushions and mats. Our fabrics are durable and woven from quality natural fibers
