uchi-naoshi

打ち直し

 

It is the method to loosen the hardened cotton and make it elastic again. In particular, futons filled with cotton can easily keep moisture in and tend to become hard after a long period of use. Also, umo-butons become clumpy or uneven because feathers inside tend to become entangled. When such problems occur, you can use Uchi-naoshi service which can make your futons return to the elastic and soft state like the brand-new ones. The desirable timing for uchi-naoshi service would be after use of a kake-buton for 5 years and a shiki-buton for 3 years. When you use the uchi-naoshi service, you can replace the futon’s outer and lining fabrics with new ones and turn the futon for adults into the one for kids or turn it into zabutons.
