Care Instructions

The Shiki Futon Mattress needs to be routinely aired out, flipped over and rotated. We recommend placing a coconut coir pad or Tatami mat underneath the mattress while in use, not directly on the floor, to create ideal airflow and prevent mildew and mold.

Traditional shikibutons are made from layers of cotton and encased in a cotton twill fabric case, and are made for use on the floor or on a tatami mat. Our All Organic Traditional Folding Shiki Futon Mattress includes an organic cotton and organic wool batting surrounded by an organic cotton twill case. 

The breathable and lightweight fibers allow for a deeper night's sleep as the wool repels moisture and regulates heat, for improved sleep. These organic wool and cotton shiki futon mattresses are designed to be rolled up and stored away when not in use. You can customize your comfort by layering two or more shikibutons on top of each other. This can provide a softer sleeping surface.

Mattress Feel

Mattress Feel

Soft mattresses & futons are ideal for sitting & side sleepers. These mattresses offer enough support while still providing con- forming ability for your shoulders, hips, knees, & is generally a perfect firmness for small sleepers. A sleeper weighing less than 140 lbs may enjoy a soft mattress more. 

These softer materials allow the sinkage of hips, knees and shoulders. Creating better pressure relief and support for the body. Extra soft and soft mattresses are not recommended for tummy or back sleepers. If your mattresses will be used traditionally for sitting, an extra Soft to soft mattress is a great choice.

Organic Wool & PLA Fiber

Organic Wool: Sleep like a baby. Wool offers your body ultimate temperature control, muscle relaxation and deeper REM sleep, and is a natural fire retardant. Our mattresses contain nothing but natural and organic wool to create the fire resistance needed to pass all fire-retardant requirements.

Non-GMO Potato Based PLA Fiber: PLA is our potato based fiber similar to polyester fiber without any PETRO-CHEMICALS! There is NO off gassing and is hypoallergenic. Our PLA fiber resilient material resists body impressions and makes an ideal sitting and sleeping surface. Our Non-GMO plant starch from potatoes is non-toxic, soft and comfortable, wicks away moisture and is certified by Oeko-tex Standard 100. 

PLA fiber is renewable, biodegradable and is derived from annually renewable crops, 100% compostable and its life cycle reduces the Earth's carbon dioxide levels.
Adding PLA fiber to organic wool adds to the total loft and resists compression.

Cotton Mattress

USDA Certified Organic Cotton

The organic cotton we use in our mattresses and futons is American. Organic Cotton is naturally breathable, allowing for air circulation, and doesn’t tend to irritate the skin.
