J-Life All-Natural Japanese Futon

Regular price $199.95 Sale


Years ago, we decided to offer Americans a true Japanese style mattress - one constructed of quality materials, without foam or innersprings, - pure and simple. So, we deconstructed Japanese shikibutons, talked to shikibuton master craftsmen in Japan and developed the design of the J-Life Shikifuton.

True to Japanese custom, our futon is made from pure cotton. The J-Life Shikifuton has no wool, foam or innersprings.

The cover is also 100% unbleached cotton duck - tough enough to warrant the Manufacturers 5 Year Warranty on materials and construction.  The fill is also made from 100% cotton for comfort and natural air-flow.   In addition this authentic Japanese futon meets US fire retardant standards by using a natural boron material (more about "boron" below).

The futon features 'knife' edges that make it lay flatter and fold more easily. Fold our futon into thirds for storage.

The J-Life Shikifuton is available in two thicknesses, a four inch and a more traditional 3 inch. (In Japan, new shikibuton are about 3 inches thick. Our more popular 4 inch futon is made to accommodate the larger frames of American sleepers.)

Comfort level is firm.

The J-Life Shikifuton is also available with a custom removable cover made of 100% cotton fabrics imported from Japan.


J-Life Shikifutons are sized to fit American bed frames. Please note that Japanese style shikifutons are not meant for American futon frames. They require a flat solid surface such as a platform bed or tatami or floor.
