The batting of the Futon Cotton, Latex & Coconut mattress consists of 6 layers of carded cotton and an internal layer of latex and another internal layer of rubberized coconut fibre.
This model is a mattress with firm lying comfort: the presence of several layers of cotton and the coir layer determine the firmness, whereas the high density ergonomic latex insert balances the composition. The coconut layer also makes this mattress very breathable as it contains thousands of tiny spaces between the fibers which allow air to pass and circulate through the futon.
Thanks to the high-quality of the combination of materials in this batting, this futon maintains its form for many years.
This mattress is also asymmetrical, this means that it imparts a different feeling depending on which side you choose to lay on. If you position the mattress with the layer of latex facing upwards, the futon will softer and more ergonomic under the body as latex naturally adapts to the body form. If you position the mattress with the layer of coconut fiber facing upwards the mattress will feel firmer and stiffer under the body.
If you wish to have a mattress with an additional winter side we recommend the Futon Cotton, Latex, Coconut & Wool.
Futon-mattresses are especially appreciated for their versatility. In Japan futons are spread on tatami-floors for sleeping at night and during the day they are rolled up to allow to use the area otherwise. Futons can very well also be used in beds with slat frames or tatami.
This japanese futon is available as a single, french or double mattress.

The futon cover is available in different colors, which you will find in the above selection. The hand made step-stichting and edge seams are the same color as the cover of the futon. We recommend to add the practical textil side handles, so that the futon can be moved more easily. These are sewed to both sides of the futon.
Futons are quilted mattresses so you cannot remove the cover. Possible stains will have to be removed with a stain remover. To protect the Futon from stains and dust, we recommend to add the removable cover which opens on three sides. You will find this in the Accessories section. The removable cover is made of the same material as the futon cover and can be ordered in a different color.
Further we recommend to turn the futon over from time to time, so that the cotton layers maintain their density. The futon should also occasionally be rolled up and put to air out, so that the moisture which may have been absorbed from the air can escape. It's best to repeat this operation at every change of season.
In Arpel we do not use recycled cotton for the batting of our futons. With recycled cotton we wouldn't be able to guarantee the desired quality of the fibre, as it is often too worn out. Arpel mattresses are made of high-quality virgin cotton and with proper care they will last up to 10 years.
