This is the packing sample of our futon mattress (double size).
When you collect your futon at the counter in the airport, it’s packed like this.
We push and exhaust air to pack it smaller, but we don’t use plastic bands for compression because it causes deformation of the futon. A plastic bag and a heavy weight craft bag is used for packing.

Our futons don’t contain dangerous material so they are accepted as checked-in baggage.
But please remember you might have to pay the excess baggage charge depending on your flight class.
