Traditional Futon Mattresses.

Here at the Futon Shop we have recently been asked, severel times, for traditional futon mattresses. That is, futon mattresses filled with a simple combination of cotton to the top and bottom of the mattress and a filling of woolfelt inbetween; i.e. no polyester or foam. Many customers have commented that they have slept on this type of futon mattress for years and have been having trouble sourcing a replacement, as most futon mattresses now feature polyester or foam as a 'core'. Well, the polyester / foam 'cores' were developed to give more 'rebound' to the futon mattress, particularly when used on a futon frame for sitting as the 'cores' helped to keep the futon mattress upright on the frame, i.e. it prevented the futon mattress from 'sagging' on the frame, a welcome addition I'm sure you'll agree. Anyway when the mattress is being used purely on a bed frame then we agree that a traditional mix of cotton and woolfelt provides a 'firm but supportive' feel for those customers seeking a traditional style futon mattress, and we have therefore decided to offer this product on our website at just follow the link below to the product page.


  1. The nice thing about these mattresses is that the wool acts as a natural fire retardant.

  2. Thanks for the info. It very much helped to find a good organic mattresses. I decided to go for the Natural latex mattress...
    It's a great lightweight and soft mattress.. I’m going to be on the market for a new bed soon, so definitely have your post bookmarked.
