Futons covered in exquisite fabrics. Futons filled with pure and simple cotton. Futons that offer comfort at night and compact storage during the day.

We have reproduced small quantities of this quintessential Japanese futon mattress and can now proudly offer the J-Life Traditional Japanese Shikifuton in four distinctive limited edition 100% cotton fabrics from Japan.

  • J-Life International is an excellent company with high quality products. I purchased the round buckwheat hull pillow for under my neck. It works perfect for back sleepers (such as myself). Best sleep I've had in years!!
