J-Life Shikifuton with Kanji Black Removable Cover
Like sleep in Japan!
Made to painstaking traditional Japanese specifications by an American manufacturer, the J-Life Shikifuton offers the ultimate comfort of a true shikibuton. This comes with a beautiful removable cover in 100% cotton imported from Japan fabric as pictured.
THE J-LIFE SHIKIFUTON IS AN AUTHENTIC JAPANESE FUTON
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 shikifuton mattress uses Boron as a fire retardant.
The custom zippered removable cover fits over the 100% unbleached cotton duck mattress cover. The custom removable cover is made of high quality 100% cotton fabric imported directly from Japan and features traditional patterns.
The kanji script is from an old Japanese poem that reads:
"The fragrant, colored flowers are delicately scattered. Who can remain unchanged in this world?
Transcend the present world, do not dream fleeting dreams, do not act out."
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. Click herefor shikifuton care instructions.
Please allow 5 to 7 days for production before shipping (excluding weekends and holidays).
The J-Life Shikifuton is also available without a custom removable cover.
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.
Pair your shikifuton with a tatami mat to ensure proper air circulation and to provide added comfort. Our tatami mats are the perfect base for a Japanese mattress.
*King size futons are made by placing two Twin XL futons side by side.
