Meotoban

meotoban

This is a 67×72cm zabuton which is designed for bridal goods, so a blue-colored meotoban for men and a red-colored meotoban for women are sold in pairs. A meotoban is generally made of silk fabrics, so it looks luxurious in appearance. A purple-colored meotoban for men is also popular especially when it is used for Buddhist memorial service.

Also, this is a large-sized zabuton filled with thick cotton batting, so it is used as a koza-zabuton which the rakugo storytellers use on the stage.
