Shikibuton, the power of simplicity
A shikibuton mattress, also known as a shikifuton, is a traditional Japanese mattress that has gained popularity worldwide for its unique features. These mattresses are known for their simplicity, versatility, and exceptional comfort. Crafted with care and using premium materials, our shikibuton mattresses offer a luxurious sleeping surface that molds to your body’s contours, providing unmatched support.
The filling: natural or organic cotton
We understand that a good night’s sleep is essential for your overall well-being. That’s why we use the finest materials to create your shikibuton mattress. Our mattresses are designed to distribute your body weight evenly, relieving pressure points and ensuring a restful sleep throughout the night.
All of our products are 100% authentic and handcrafted in Japan. Each mattress is carefully constructed with a combination of high-quality cotton. You can choose the filling of the shikibuton mattress:
- 100% natural, untreated, unbleached cotton of the highest quality from Mexico
- 100% GOTS-certified organic cotton from India
Natural cotton from Mexico
We highly recommend our natural cotton as it is the most authentic. As the cotton is unbleached, with lighter patterns such as Plain White, you may see some natural marbling of the cotton or flower casings.
Organic cotton from India
Our organic cotton is denser than our natural cotton and is a good choice for customers who have asthma, skin allergies and/or sensitivities. This filling is also a good choice when you are more environmentally conscious and if you like a firmer sleep support. We add an extra .5 – 1.5kg of organic cotton to every shikibuton order, depending on the size.
With either cotton choice, there are no added chemicals or pesticides. All of our cotton provides great support for sleeping and they are a healthy sleeping option.
Simplicity meets versatility
In addition to being a comfortable sleep surface, a shikifuton mattress can be easily folded and stored during the day. This allows you to maximize your living space. Whether you have a small apartment, a guest room, or even when you are planning a camping trip, our shikibuton mattress is the perfect solution. The allure of a shikibuton mattress goes beyond its functionality. It brings a touch of Japanese elegance and style to any bedroom or living space. The clean lines and minimalistic design of our shikifuton mattresses add a sense of tranquility and harmony to your environment.
Embrace the beauty of simplicity and elevate your space with the timeless charm of a shikibuton mattress.
