Characteristics of organic cotton
Organic cotton is produced using organic methods without using agricultural chemicals or artificial fertilizers, and grown on land where chemicals have not been used for three years or more. Instead of using pesticides, noxious insects are removed by introducing their natural predators.
As the cotton is grown using safe methods, it does not irritate the skin, and can be safely used by small children and people with sensitive skins. Natural cotton has the natural elasticity. It can create suitable hardness for sleeping.
Sleeping on a natural cotton futon mattress will help to align your head, neck, and spine and helps you maintain a good posture.

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. The more we seek functionality and convenience, including cost and time savings, the greater the risk of exposure to harmful chemicals.

To select the correct futon size
Please note that what we show on our site is the size of the futon fabric. If it is filled with cotton, it will be about 4 inches (10 cm) shorter in length and width.
Example : Futon Mattress - Single 78” x 39” (200 x 100 cm) will be 74" x 35" (190 x 90 cm) when you receive.
If you are planning to place the futon mattress on your bed, and want to fit them perfectly, please be aware of it and select carefully.
All sizes are approximate.
Shiki Futon (Futon Mattress) at the time of delivery is very fluffy and voluminous, measuring over 4” (10 cm) in the thickest center position but after about one week of usage the fluffiness will begin to settle, and the mattress will transform into a stiffer, denser futon. After about two to three months of use, the cotton padding becomes even thinner (more constricted) and the futon will become about half of its original thickness. Although the volume decreases, the cotton fiber's "support features" become activated and the futon becomes a mattress that will support your proper sleeping posture.
How We Make Futon
We source quality raw cotton from India. Classic, heavy-duty machines, which have been used for over three generations, get rid of cotton chips and make the cotton suitable as futon filling. We sterilize cotton by heat. We don't use any chemical material in any of our processes.
Many kinds of cotton fabrics are in stock to meet customers’ various demands. Our skilled artisans finish more than 15 futon mattresses per day when it‘s busy. The products are then shipped to the world from our office on the lower floor of the factory. Our making process is minimal and productive at the same time. We can cut the costs of the middleman and transportation. That’s why we can offer quality products at a fair price.
