THE J-LIFE ALL-NATURAL 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 cover is also 100% unbleached cotton duck. 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 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.
Ships within 24 hours (excluding weekends and holidays).
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.
*King size futons are made by placing two Twin XL futons side by side
