Traditional All Cotton Futon Plus 10cm (Japanese Shiki Style)

The Traditional Plus Futon is our premium all cotton futon. It is constructed with 100% unprocessed A-grade Australian cotton, covered with an organic cotton/viscose blend fabric. The Traditional Plus futon is suitable for use directly on the floor, on top of Japanese tatami matting or in the campervan.

An optional layer of 100% Australian carded wool can be added to both sides of your futon to aid in insulating the internal cotton padding from environmental & user moisture, as well as softening the sleeping surface further.

Our quality futons are covered in organic cotton & viscose blend woven fabric – made to our specifications. Viscose is a manufactured regenerated, plant derived cellulose fiber.

Our Traditional Plus Futons are hand made here in Byron Bay using our unique method of manufacturing that guarantees you will have the finest luxury futon with a superior quality of workmanship. Our traditional futons have an internal lining to prevent cotton from shifting or lumping — for more about the quality workmanship of our futons please review our FAQ page. As your futon is made to order, please allow up to 10 working days for the manufacture of your new futon.

This firm, thin mattress is not suitable for use on a slatted bed base. For a slatted bed base please select one of our Foam Core Futon mattresses or use 2 traditional futons (one on top of the other) to create extra depth & cushioning.

Zentai Living has perfected the manufacturing of futons since 1981.

Do I need to use a mattress protector on my futon mattress?

Yes, we recommend that you always use a Natural Cotton or Wool type mattress protector on your futon mattress. This will absorb any body moisture and, therefore, extend the life of your mattress. The mattress protector can be washed regularly, ensuring a healthier sleep. Our Bambi Cottina 100% Cotton Mattress Protector is the perfect choice.

Note: Tatami mats are not included with futons. Please click here to purchase our Bed Size Tatami Mats to go under your futon.

We offer a 12 month warranty on faulty workmanship. We do not offer any warranty on general wear and tear, including mould, compression, or mistreatment. The product requires certain maintenance and instructions for this are given with the product at the point of sale or can be found on our website in the support section.

    Very happy

    Posted by Meg Thomas on 28th Jul 2019

    Arrived quicker than expected and started having a good night sleep from the first night. We bought the futon mattress as my partner has had problems with his back. I didn’t expect that I would get such relief from muscle tension myself as well! I love going to bed now and get a much more restorative sleep.

    Been using this for 3 months. Comfy and feel the same as sleeping on a bed but better.

    Firm and Soft

    Posted by Kelly on 6th May 2019

    I love the softness of the 100% organic cotton futon over the firmness of the floor (or platform bed). My back and neck benefit from the alignment of my spine and my shoulders and hips benefit from the acu-pressure applied during sleep.

    All cotton futon

    Posted by Kathleen on 31st Jan 2019

    This has to be the comfiest futon i've slept on yet.. It also seems a bit lighter or in the least more manageable for me to move around on its own compared to other futons i've had.. service was great, with staff making the effort to confirm my order and keep me up to date with its progress and to check on the delivery.. i highly recommend both this mattress and zentai..

    Good quality shikibuton

    Posted by Lessian on 23rd Aug 2018

    Good quality manufacturing, is quite comfy. Only thing to note is that most people would not be used to a mattress that has so little responsiveness due to no springs, has a 'dead' feel to it.
    Surprisingly fast manufacture time, Zentai staff very accommodating of delivery requirements.
    Would definately shop here again in future.

    Just purchased this all cotton futon with wool layer. Very nice product and a very nice sleep. Have not woken up during the night and get up in the morning without a sore back!
