THE J-LIFE CERTIFIED ORGANIC 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 new futon is made from GOTS certified organic cotton and it features a strong wool barrier for protection. This J-Life Organic Shikifuton has no foam, boric acid or innersprings.
The cover is 100% unbleached cotton duck. The fill is also made from organic cotton and wool for comfort and natural air-flow. In addition, this authentic Japanese futon meets US fire retardant standards by using certified organic wool material that does not contain any boron material.
The futon features 'knife' edges that make it lay flatter and fold more easily. Fold our futon into thirds for storage.
The J-Life Organic Shikifuton is available in two thicknesses, a 5 inch and a more traditional 3 inch. (In Japan, new shikibuton are about 3 inches thick. J-Life's new organic 5 inch futon is made to accommodate the larger frames of American sleepers.)
Comfort level is firm.
Ships within 1-2 weeks (excluding weekends and holidays)

J-Life Organic Shikifutons are sized to fit American bed frames. Please note that Japanese style Organic shikifutons are not meant for American futon frames. They require a flat solid surface such as a platform bed, tatami mat, or floor. Use our guide below to find the correct tatami mat size to go with your shikifuton:
*King size futons are made by placing two Twin XL futons side by side
Please Note: Due to compression caused by the packing and shipping process, futons may be several inches smaller than their actual size upon delivery until they have had time to fully expand. Please allow your shikifuton at least 1-2 weeks to expand to its actual size.
