This 11 cm thick futon is made of pure carded cotton. It’s slightly thicker and firmer than traditional japanese futons as it is enriched with a 3 cm thick layer of ergonomic memory foam. This 100% natural product offers a medium firm ergonomic resting comfort. The pure ecru cotton cover is available in different colors.
The batting of the Futon Cotton & Memory 3 mattress consists of 6 layers of carded cotton and a 3 cm layer of viscoelastic material better known as memory foam.
This mattress offers a medium firm ergonomic lying comfort: the presence of several layers of cotton determine the firmness, whereas the layer of memory foam balances the composition. This futon is an innovative material combination of classical cotton and a new generation of material that is foamed with water and has viscoelastic qualities. This mattress is asymetric and should not be turned over, so that body remains in contact with the comfortable memory layer. Thanks to the high-quality of this material composition this futon maintains its form for many years.
If you want a mattress with more memory foam we recommend Futon Cotton & Memory 6
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.
Memory is a new generation material which consists of viscoelastic foam made of water and essential oils. Its main characteristic is that through the pressure and warmth of the body it newly forms itself and afterwards returns to its original form. Due to its ergonomic viscoelastic qualities memory foam offers good body support and distributes the weight evenly. Further it reacts to every movement during the night and relieves backaches. Unlike latex mattresses futons with memory are very breathable and pleasantly cooling.

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.
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 removeable 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 it can let out any moisture absorbed over time. I's best to repeat this operation at least 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 fiber, 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.
