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.

    Loving the futon, great quality and considerate packaging!

  2. Caterina

    Fast shipping and great customer service. The shikibuton (my first one) is extremely soft, comfortable, and beautiful. I am very happy with this purchase and will recommend it to anyone who’s looking for a futon/shikibuton.

  3. Zoe

    I would like to thank you for your help. Today we received futons inn Slovakia. They looks great.We can’t wait to try them after they will hang for a bit.

    I wanted to write to say how pleased we are with our futon. It arrived last Friday (very prompt given the shipping from Japan, we have waited far longer for things to arrive from the UK!) and we have slept better than we ever have since then. We have both spent periods of time in Japan over the last ten years or so, often staying in a traditional house in Tokyo, sleeping (very well) in a tatami room on futons. It’s that experience that we had hoped we could recreate at home. We bought tatami and fitted them to our bed frame, and the futon from you completed the plan. And we are so pleased that it’s worked so well. So, many thanks for the excellent product and the excellent service.

    Melissa was so helpful and friendly, it was my first time buying a shikibuton and I received advice over and above what was expected, she somehow found out that I had ordered the wrong product and helped rectify my order. The shikibuton arrived in over 1 week and we’ve had the best sleep on it that we’ve had in years. It’s a beautiful, organic product, that was made with love, my girlfriend was having back trouble, so I thought it best we make a radical change, I also bought a tatami mat, but think the shikibuton would be fine on the carpet.. Highly recommended and a rare experience to purchase an item from someone so lovely and caring, just the way it should be!

    We’ve ordered our Futon this summer and got it in this magnificent Indigo Koi colour. That was the best purchase for our new home. We wanted to try something different and something non harmful for the Ecology.

    After a long research we stopped onto Futonsfromjapan company and it was worth it. Support was amazing on every stage. It was delivered way faster than we expected (after it was prepared). We’re sleeping for a couple of months on it now and no Back or Neck pain and the thing that I can actually air our mattress is making me happy. Nothing better than freshly sunbathed Futon with fresh sheets, trust me 🙂

    Thank you Futons from Japan for such an amazing opportunity to try authentic products.

    The futon had a good airing in the sun and has been used all week. We are very pleased with it. Thank you so much for all the courteous responses to our questions before buying – all of the information was very helpful!
