The J-Life Shizen 自然 Organic Shiki Futon offers a true Japanese sleeping experience with all natural, 100% organic materials. Now also available in a Super Firm 3" mattress for those who want a more traditional thin futon.
The word Shizen (pronounced she-zen) 自然 has several meanings in Japanese - Natural, At Ease, Without Stress. All of those meanings apply to our premiere organic futon. Your sleep will be safe from chemicals and pesticidal residue with the natural comfort of superb long staple fiber cotton wrapped in needle punched wool.
Long fiber staple US grown cotton makes up the core of your futon mattress. It is softer with greater resilience than the short fiber staple cotton generally available in the United States. The Japanese have prized long fiber staple cotton for centuries for its superior sleep qualities. Our long fiber staple cotton is organically grown - that means no chemical fertilizers or pesticides and certified organic by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) where it has earned the highest organic certification available.
We use needle punched wool to wrap the cotton in fire resistant, mold resistant and dust mite resistant softness. How can wool make your mattress fire resistant? It just can. Before modern materials exceeded its qualities wool was used for firemen's clothing. Our futons have met the highest US federal flammability standards.
The natural lanolin in sheep's wool deters dust mites and mold.
The cover is 100% organic 10 ounce cotton twill.
