The matching cloth with a white center is a zagu used for seated meditation or sleeping. When not in use the zagu is worn over the shoulder, rather like a stole known as an ohi. The zagu varies from the ohi in that it does not have patched panels. Both the zagu and the ohi have appliquéd corner decoration.
