Are you sure a ‘futon’ style mattress is for you?
Futons are traditionally made from cotton or other natural fibre and are hard / firm and not totally suitable for side sleepers. They have no ‘give’ or ‘bounce’.
They are of Japanese origin and ideal for people used to sleeping on a hard surface.
Do not choose to purchase a futon mattress for the wrong reasons
A/ Its trendy
B/ It is lightweight and will fold easily. (It isn’t and it won’t).
C/ It is a cheaper version of an organic cotton innerspring mattress. It is a different type of mattress.
Our futons were originally intended to satisfy the needs of very chemically sensitive people whose everyday health and wellbeing depend on a non toxic nights sleep above all else.
If you are still sure a futon mattresss is what you are looking for be aware and prepared for the extra maintenance required because if the regime of regular turning and airing is not strictly followed by you, then we cannot be held responsible. Any size futon mattress, including cradle and cot, must be used on both sides and requires regular turning. It is imperative, that any size, is used on a hardwood slat base bed/cot or cradle. Contact us for further details on a suitable bed base.
When using a cot, cradle or other size futon for a bed wetter (including the inevitable nappy leaks) ALWAYS layer our mattress pads or OLD washed towels under the mattress protector and check/ wash and replace every day as non of these products contain or are covered with waterproof material.
Please also, take a moment to read our very important ‘care’ instructions below
To allow for proper air circulation, for increased effectiveness of the health benefits gained when using these certified organic products on a daily basis and to prevent mould and mildew forming, your organic cotton mattress/futon should always be placed on a good quality slat bed base.
We strongly recommend that you use one of our natural timber slat bed bases in conjunction with your organic cotton mattress, which has been custom made in a healthy environment from Australian plantation hardwood.
The Organature Futon mattresses are made from our carded (fluffed out) cotton and appear softer to begin with but, as with all Natural fibres, the cotton compresses, creating a firm surface.
Futon mattresses and toppers filled with 100% natural fibres such as cotton, wool, kapok, straw etc. are not the same as conventional futons and toppers; even these different natural fibre filled ones vary in construction and sleeping.
Conventional futon mattresses and toppers are softer because they contain synthetic foam, memory foam, foamed rubber (incorrectly referred to as latex), or a combination of these chemical laden products.
If you have never slept on, or used a futon or topper filled with 100% natural fibres previously, we prefer to talk to you before proceeding with order. Natural fibre futons are perfect for children as children are lighter in weight and thus slowly compress the filling, adjusting to the firmer sleeping surface.
Free from dangerous toxic chemicals. (‘Non-iron’, ‘Easy care’, ‘Wrinkle free‘, ‘Permanent press’, ‘Ultra Fresh’ and ‘Flame proof’).
