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.

I grew up in Japan, and sleeping in a futon has always felt like home. My partner, who loves warm/weighted blankets, also really enjoyed them when I took her to visit Japan. So much so that I decided to gift her this kakefuton. I did a lot of research before I purchased, and I loved that this store has a rich history futon craftsmenship. The seller was very kind and efficient - I was amazed at how fast the item arrived from Japan! My partner absolutely adores this kakefuton, and says it’s like sleeping in a cloud ☺️

I did like the futon cover. Quality, shipment and such all OK. However, I used to have another futon cover, although not thicker, which was much heavier (preferred) or filled with denser cotton filling. If I could chose, I would have a more dense filling. The extra weight of the cover makes for a more cosy feeling while sleeping (weighted blankets are also recommended to alleviate anxiety and depression)

I’ve always wanted an authentic Japanese futon, so I ordered a new Japanese bed- shikibuton topper with cover, kakebuton, tatami mats, and pillows- and the items have beyond exceeded my expectations! The quality is unbeatable, and customer service was top notch. I couldn’t believe how quickly everything arrived. I would HIGHLY recommend this seller. They put a lot of care into each item that they sell. I’m sure at some point I will be ordering again! Thank you very much!!! A+++!!! ❤️
