Fabric : Cotton 100 % (unbleached, undyed)
Filling : Natural Cotton 100 % (non-organic)
The pictures here are of non-organic version. But there isn’t much of difference in the appearance between them.
This futon topper is 30% thinner than our other standard futon mattresses. Other than difference of the quantity of the cotton filling, making process and the style are the same as our other standard futon mattresses.
We made this futon topper for the extra softness for your comfortable sleep.
If you think your futon mattress might be too firm (or it’s been getting too firm, it happens after long time use), you can just add this futon topper on it and add extra softness. Or if you prefer firmer mattress, you can sleep on this futon topper alone.
In case two people are sharing the futon, you can customize the thickness to the preference of each person by layering this on one side. It’s also great for placing on an air mattress for your guests. Like our other futon mattress, this futon topper is breathable and bring a natural touch. It’s ideal to cover the PVC top. It also gives air bed the good support. You can provide sound sleeping time to your guests.
For covering, the covers for standard shiki futon mattress can be used for this futon topper.
*Fabric (You can choose organic or not organic )
Organic one or not organic, both types are bleach and dye free to be more gentle on the skin and the environment.
This is the very color of the cotton, the original material.
Sometimes you can see the tiny brown dots which are the parts of cotton. They are harmless to human body.
* Filling (You can choose organic or not organic )
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.
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.
