What variations of futon are available ?

We have many hand made futon mattresses and quilts in our shop. You might wonder what the differences are. It’s very simple. All the making process and structure of futon mattresses are the same. There is no core material, but the content is natural cotton filling only. It is then stuffed into a bag-shaped cotton fabric and hand-stitched with tassels and bindings. So as futon quilt. The difference in price is due to the price of cotton and fabric materials.

 

These are the variations of the materials.
