Great Patience Zen Stitchery offers traditional and western-style meditation clothing, monks bags and meditation cushions.  These are authentically sewn according to traditional Japanese sewing methods. Western-style adaptations (western-style kimono) are available with some of the clothing.

Unless specified, all garments are made of 100% preshrunk high quality cotton material. Linen and linen-cotton blends are also available. All cushions are handmade and authentically hand sewn at Total Dynamic Functioning Zen Temple in Los Angeles, Ca. We have been sewing cushions for over twenty years and have over thirty five years of meditation experience.

It is hoped that in offering these garments to others, the seeds of Buddhism planted in the West, will patiently, yet steadfastly, take deep root and grow throughout America.

The name of this Stitchery is in memory of and deep gratitude to Dainin Katagiri-Roshi,  my teacher for many years.
