Futons and Chemical Free Sofas and Bedding for your home and family.We manufacture our futon mattresses and cushions for our organic and natural sofas and sofa beds and futon sets in the heart of San Francisco. Our futon mattresses and sofa cushions are made from natural and organic cotton, fire retardant free soybean based foams, fire retardant free memory foam, memory gels, fire retardant free natural latex, fire retardant free virgin wool, coils and fabrics. Traditional sofas, sofa beds and click clacks for sale contain the cancer causing chemical called tris (1,3-dichloro-2-propyl) phosphate (TDCPP) imbedded in their foam cushions. The Futon Shop’s handmade mattresses and cushions for our sofa and sofa beds made in San Francisco contain no fire retardants in our foam, memory foam, memory gels, latex and wool.
To ensure we pass Federal and state flammability laws for mattresses and cushions we use virgin wool as a natural fire retardant or natural Borax in our cotton. We can eliminate the Borax, with a physicians note. Health providers today gladly write notes at no charge to help keep your home as clean and chemical free as possible.
Please join us in the fight against harmful and carcinogenic chemicals in your home and buy local and handmade sofas without chemical for your home.

Why Organic Mattresses Are Better
What Makes A Mattress Organic?
Types of Organic Mattress Ingredients
Organic • Natural and Pure Because it’s better for the planet. Organic farming is a healthier, more sustainable way of producing vegetables and fibers. Organic methods focus on soil health, replenishing soil fertility, promote bio diversity, and protect our air, water, soils and wildlife from toxic chemicals. Organic farming is also a powerful tool in the fight against global warming. It reduces our dependence on fossil fuels and stores carbon in the soil, where it boosts soil fertility instead of releasing it to the atmosphere as a greenhouse gas. Organic farming just makes sense — for people and for the planet. Try our Egyptian Cotton Futon Collection, premium quality futons made with Staple Egyptian, Recycled, or Organic Cottons. Make sure your futons are made with the highest quality cotton with the least environmental impact. For your new baby protect them with love and our, crib mattresses and crib mattresses with latex.
Organic cotton is shipped to our San Francisco factory from farmers throughout the United States. We receive large bales of cotton and wool which we felt into bats to layer into our green and organic futon mattresses. Click on this video to see how we make the organic cotton felt batting that we layer into each and every handmade futon mattress.
We use USDA certified Organic Cotton from American Farmers.
Naturalux Latex is extracted from the tropical rubber tree in a way that is similar to tapping a maple tree for syrup. A queen size mattress uses the renewable output of 2500 rubber trees, which account for the removal of 143 metric tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere each year! Our unique Dunlop Process for manufacturing creates high density foam natural latex futon cores in a way that preserves the natural characteristics of latex. Natural latex futon mattresses give a higher degree of spring and softness, offering you the perfect balance of comfort and support so you can enjoy deep, sound sleep night after night. Latex instantaneously conforms to the shape of your body, gently supporting and comforting you all night long, with up to 33% more pressure relief than other foam bedding. So you can awaken refreshed and rejuvenated to meet the challenges of the day without the tossing and turning, without the pain and stiffness that disrupt a good night’s sleep, and with restored energy and enthusiasm. It also reduces high pressure areas that shut off capillary blood flow and cause a person to toss and turn. Our latex futon mattresses alleviate pressure to bring oxygen and nutrients to muscles to provide a deeper, more restful sleep.
Naturalux pure latex is delivered to our San Francisco factory in one, two and six inch cores. We traditionally use firm to extra firm densities but we can offer you extra soft to extra firm.
Wool • is environmentally sustainable. Wool has filled our lives with comfort and warmth for thousands of years. Today the bedroom is much more than a place for sleeping. It is a quiet haven. A retreat from the stresses of day to day life. When we are surrounded by the natural luxury of pure new wool, its remarkable strength and softness give strong feelings of safety and security. Wool provides us with a personal environment that is health-enhancing because it is a natural fiber. Wool disperses moisture from our skin, provides even warmth and body temperature, resists flame and static electricity and helps to reduce the stressful noise levels that surround us every day. And yet, while we have been living with the qualities of wool throughout the ages, wool is also a fiber for the future. Regardless of the advances mankind makes in the creation of new synthetics, technology will never recreate the comfort, strength, softness and security only wool can offer. You will love our warm and cozy Essence collection of futons and futon mattresses.
100% Virgin Wool mattress toppers are hypo-allergenic, mold and mildew resistant, no motion transfer and most importantly chemical-free. Wool Mattress Toppers will last a life time and will offer you all the comfort and support that you need. The contemporary bed-time story, by The Better Sleep Council suggest that two thirds of Americans lose sleep due to stress or some form insomnia. The Wool Mattresses ensures comfort and support for a restful night sleep. Wool added to any mattress helps your body control temperature during sleep. During the winter months wool keeps you warm and during the summer months keeps you cool. Because wool wicks away moisture you stay comfortable and dry throughout the night. Our American grown wool is not only eco-friendly it is crimp like a spring to add support and loft to any futon mattress.
