production time 1 to 2 weeks



How to select the correct size

1. Measure the length and width of the area where you want to place the futon.
2. Select the size that adds 4" (10 cm) to that length and width. That is the size of the fabric needed to make a futon for that area. We accept the orders by the fabric size. Thickness cannot be changed.
3. If you want to avoid silk threads, please check silk free.
4. Please add to cart and proceed to check out.

*Since we will cut the fabric for you, cancellations will not be accepted for any reason once the order is placed.

*Some sizes are not available for choice. This is because they cannot be produced due to the width of the original fabric.




Q. Is there any difference between a futon measuring L210 cm W160 cm and a L160 cm W210 cm ?
  A futon measuring L210 cm W160 cm, is it OK to sleep along the 160cm side of the futon?


A.  Yes, they are different.
It is better to sleep along the ”Length" side. Because the center of the futon is padded with more cotton along the "Length" side, designed for the person to sleep there. 
The weight of the body compresses the cotton, so it gradually becomes flat, but if you sleep in a different direction, you may find it uncomfortable.

FAQ  - We want to sleep with my family together and would like a futon larger than a queen size., what should we do?

The largest shikifuton we can produce is queen size (Fabric size 82" x 62" / 210 cm × 160 cm    Finished size 78" x 58" / 200 cm x 150 cm).
In Japan, when two or more people sleep together, they often use several single-size futons side by side.
Large futons are not often used because they are heavy and difficult to lift and move.
If two parents and a small child are sleeping together, two single-size futons are laid out side by side like this. The child often sleeps closer to one of the parents rather than in the middle. Children moves while sleeping. Although since children weigh less, the difference between the two futons is not really disturbing for them. Adults are heavier and may find it uncomfortable to sleep.

Certified Organic Cotton

Organic cotton, the raw material used for the filling, is grown by the bioRe Project(*1), a social project in India, and is grown organically, without the use of pesticides or chemical fertilizers.

This project not only reduces environmental impact but also ensures socially fair production. In addition, it has been inspected and certified by a third-party certification organization based on strict standards that cover everything from the fields to the spinning process.

Also, we at Futon Tokyo do not use any chemicals in the process of turning raw cotton into cotton filling. The safety of our work process is certified by OEKO-TEX(*2). This certification is given only to products that have passed the world's strictest inspection standards and are recognized as safe. The most strict of these requirements, Class 1, was obtained in 2023.


The bioRe Project (*1)

The bioRe project was initiated by the Swiss company Remei in India in 1991 and in Tanzania in 1994. It is a social project initiated for sustainable organic cotton production. The project is not just about buying cotton from the farmers, but also about making products that are environmentally friendly and socially fair in all processes, from training in organic farming to the final product, so that the people living in this region can become self-reliant.

The project's activities are also multifaceted, including education for children, infrastructure development for medical care and water sources, financial assistance for farmers, and support for women to become self-reliant. It is known as one of the largest and most advanced projects of its kind in the world.

In 2002, in recognition of these achievements, the United Nations awarded this project the "Sustainable Development Partnership Award" at the 2nd World Environment Summit held in Johannesburg, the capital of the Republic of South Africa.


OEKO-TEX® (*2)

We are the first in Japan to receive a certification from OEKO-TEX in the futon manufacturing field. This certificate expresses our craftsmanship and commitment to safety.

OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 is the world's highest level of certification for safe textile products, which is only given to products that have passed strict analytical tests covering more than 350 hazardous chemical substances.  It is a globally recognized safety standard in the textile business that goes far beyond Japanese safety standards, including certification of sustainable factories that take into consideration the impact on the people involved in production and the environment. 
Since its inception in 1992, OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certification has been awarded more than 200,000 times, and demand for this certification continues to grow worldwide.
