Mattresses


In its most basic form the futon mattress is a simple cotton mat that is flexible and therefore easily folded. The word (futon) is the English spelling of the Japanese word which describes their bedding system. This system includes the "shikibuton" (floor cushion) on which a person sleeps and the "kakebuton" (duvet/comforter) which covers the sleeping person. The floor mat (shikibuton) is the part of the system which has been transformed into the American futon mattress/sofa-bed concept.

In the early years of the American futon industry (1968 to 1974) most futon mattresses were hand-made by cottage industry entrepreneurs. Today the hand-made variety are still available but most futon mattresses are made in manufacturing facilities that are able to produce hundreds and even thousands of units per day. Also, many traditional innerspring mattress manufacturers have begun to make futons, and their products are excellent.

By using various filling materials like cotton, wool, polyester, foam, latex, and even innerspring units you can get levels of futon mattress comfort that range from firm to plush.

As with a computer, what's inside makes a difference, and the least expensive product is rarely the best value.
