our health and comfort
Does not bounce back and compressed cotton adjusts itself to the human contours and supports the spine along its entire length.
This is why FUTONS are especially recommended to people with spine disorders or who are overweight.
- they even out the temperature. An appropriate quantity of fresh air reaches your skin during hot nights. A layer of compressed cotton at the bottom of a FUTON mattress, after it is turned over, gives an additional effect of accumulated heat produced by your body - meaning that it keeps you warm in the winter (applies to winter / summer mattresses).
- Thanks to its sheer structure and reversibility, FUTON is aired during the day, meaning that it is better ventilated and maintains its fresh, natural scent.
- The original FUTON does not contain any harmful chemical substances. It's an ideal solution for those caring for the natural environment and for their own health.
- The natural property of cotton is its ability to be compressed. To restore its original shape and puffiness of the mattress, roll it in all directions.
- Please do not clean the mattress with water. Do not wash.
- FUTON is constructed using cotton fibres - do not let it get wet.
- As with other mattress, FUTON should be turned over so that it can retain its shape and so that it can be ventilated. You should do this every 3 to 4 weeks.
- If possible, leave the mattress uncovered during the day. It can be ventilated better if left uncovered.
MATERIALS USED IN PRODUCTION OF FUTON MATTRESSES
This material has been used in Futon mattresses since the beginning. It adjusts itself to the contours of the body and supports it along its entire length. The spine is thus not exposed to additional pressures. Cotton absorbs sweat produced during the night and evaporates it completely during the day. It lets the air right through and is a completely natural material.
Coconut plates are made from softened coconut fibres combined using latex. Their structure allows the air to easily pass through, meaning that the mattress is constantly ventilated. Coconut fibres are a hard material resistant to moisture - they do not absorb water.
LATEX - FOAM RUBBER
The raw material used in the production of latex is the milk obtained from rubber trees. Latex is the latest and most exclusive material used in production of mattresses. Thanks to its elasticity it adjusts itself to the body and its rough structure allows the mattress to be continuously ventilated.
This is a popular and inexpensive material. It is well known thanks to its softness and lightness. It is healthy to humans and friendly to the environment (it does not contain Freon which is harmful to the ozone layer). The foam that we use has an ecological certificate and its purity is confirmed by the Polish Institute of Hygiene. The mattress covers are made from 100% cotton or linen.
Just a few basic rules to keep the tatami in good condition for many years. Below you will find tips on what to do with tatami and of what not to do.
Beginning use of tatami
Tatami Straw is a natural product that does not contain any artificial materials.

Tatami is the beginning of a strong natural fragrance because the material on its surface - rushes Igusa . If you do not you smell this, use tatami only in well-ventilated room. It will disappear with time.
Tatami surface color change with time of pale green to pale yellow due to the action of light.
Do not put the tatami in a very hot room, on strong heating floor or in a place where it would be exposed to direct sunlight. Too much heat dries tatami and destroys its components. Natural heat and humidity are good for tatami, but in order to preserve its color it is best to place them in a shady and cool place. Direct sunlight tatami quickly turns yellow.
Tatami likes good air ventilation!
Tatami regularly vacuumed. The movement of the brush vacuum cleaner should be done along the bulrushes (from heri to heri ), so as not to damage the surface (soon you notice the correct method in the first vacuum tatami).
After vacuuming it is good to wipe the tatami with a slightly damp cloth. As with vacuuming - correct direction of motion is along the bulrushes. Cleaning with a slightly damp cloth has a positive effect on the color, smell and strength tatami.
If staining the tatami will use clean water to remove stains. Alternatively there may be a natural soap. Do not dry tatami hair, but let it dry naturally.
The best tool to clean the tatami is an old worn towel.
How to store tatami, when not in use:
Tatami can be stored in its original packaging in a dry shady place with good ventilation. Please make sure that the tatami is dry before putting it into the package.
Tatami can be stored vertically on the long side, but please make sure that it is pointing straight ahead to avoid bending. They can also be laid flat on the ground, forming a stack with a number of tatami, if necessary.
Never walk on the tatami in footwear. Its surface can thus quickly be damaged. In addition, it is inconsistent with the Japanese tradition.
Please do not place any heavy furniture on the tatami, especially those that have a strong emphasis on small area, such as the foot of the bed.
Slip on the tatami can cause scratches or jam. Please keep this in mind, especially in the case of children playing on the tatami. Basically, the surface is completely safe in Japan usually like her does not cover. If, however, you will feel such a need - it is best to use this natural blankets or carpets.
Tatami easily moves on slippery surfaces, but this can be prevented by putting in not material to prevent slipping or buying a wooden frame for tatami.
It is good from time to time reach tatami outside. When the outside temperature is below zero, a good idea may be "freezing" tatami, just as it is done with carpets.
Tatami can be laid over underfloor heating, provided that it is not too strong.
If individual tatami mats in places where the wear is uneven - it is good to periodically swap them, as in the case of car tires.
