This is a 55×59cm zabuton, which is a little smaller than the once-dominant sized hattanban. This zabuton is also called ‘apartment-size.’ ‘Meisen’ is the name of a Japanese plain-weave silk fabric.

It is the most commonly used size and there is a wide variety of zabuton covers available, so meisenban is recommended for those who want the zabuton for the purpose of decorating their rooms tastefully.
