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.

Our Traditional Japanese Shiki Futon are made from layers of organic cotton and encased in an organic cotton twill fabric. They are made for use on the floor, tatami mat or platform bed frame. Breathable and lightweight, these Organic Cotton Shiki Futons 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. Organic Cotton is a natural, renewable, biodegradable and sustainable fiber. Cotton breathes, so it stays cool, is never itchy, and it's grown pesticide free, and free of any harmful chemicals.

Mattress Feel

Medium Firm Mattresses and futons are ideal for side sleepers. Medium to medium-firm offers firm support while soft enough to provide conforming ability for your shoulders, hips, knees, and is generally a perfect firmness for small to average sized people. If you are a side sleeper our mattress will contour to the curves of your body, for men, woman, and children. 

Medium Firm will allow just the right amount to relieve pressure points and keep your spine, neck, and back aligned. If you weigh more than 230 lbs. we recommend firm to extra firm mattresses for optimal support.
