Product Description

Shikibuton Japanese futon

Atelier de matelas Boréal Boreal Mattress Workshop

All our mattresses are handmade in Quebec since 1981

You can pick-up your Rest Natural mattress in store in Montreal or have it delivered in most areas of Canada.

Traditional Shikibuton vs Eucalyptus Shikibuton :

  • Eucalyptus fiber absorbs the body humidity better than cotton; offering a more breathable, fresh sleeping environment.
  • Both Shikibuton will compress and become firmer; the eucalyptus fiber becomes less compacted and firm.
  • Eucalyptus is a little lighter.
  • Visually they look the same and roll easily.

The futon is available in different standard sizes (twin, double and queen) but we also developed a special size (32” x 72”) that is smaller and can be used in combination with one or two tatamis. The pictures show different configurations we’ve made but you can easily imagine your own personalized sofa and add all sorts of pillows.

Tatami

The tatami is made of woven rice straw and the bottom is protected by a canvas.

Visit the tatami page for more information or to add some to your order.

You can also use the mattress without any tatamis if you are looking for a simple guest bed solution.

DESCRIPTION OF THE COMPONENTS Shikibuton Japanese futon :

Flower design with fluffy cotton bolls and jute rope hank

Cotton Fibre

Cotton fiber is used in our mattresses because it is partially a natural material which fits the body shapes and absorbs the humidity. Then our body can better regulate the heat and the sleep is less disturb by the increase in temperature.

The white cotton comes from the cotton flower that undergoes mechanical modifications. The jagged flowers are getting rid of their shell by passing through different vibration stages. The cotton is naturally white and not chemically treated. The compound is distributed in layers of different sizes. We only use cotton in layers in the making of our futons. The cotton in layers is more resistant to compression and it allows to avoid any movement of the material inside the mattress.

 Causeuse Studio (avec futon double) - Loveseat Lounge Double (with double-size futon)

Format idéal pour un divan très confortable autant en position ''futon débordant'' qu'en chaise longue. Cependant, la façon de plier le futon limite la qualité qu'on peut y mettre, suggérant donc un lit occasionnel.

Perfect size for a very comfortable couch either as a overlapping futon or as a long chair. However, the way the futon is folded limit the quality of the futon mattress and makes it a spare bed.

 Double

Le format double ''trois places'' est idéal en divan ou lit et permet d'y mettre un futon de qualité. Le format double est le plus commun.

The double size ''three seats'' is the best as a sofa or as a bed and allows to use a good quality of futon. Double is the most common frame size.

 Queen

Idéal pour les grandes personnes qui ont besoin d'un lit quotidien pliable. Cependant, l'assise est généralement moins confortable et le dossier plus haut que le format double, donc moins intéressant comme divan.

This one is perfect for tall persons who need a daily bed foldable. However, as a bed, it's generally less comfortable and the back is higher than the double size, so it's less interesting to use it as a sofa.

Eucalyptus Shikibuton Japanese futon

The Eucalyptus Shikibuton is a new and improved version of the traditional all-cotton Shikibuton.  The core is made of two layers of cotton fiber topped by layers of eucalyptus fiber on each side.  The eucalyptus fiber is more breathable, eco-friendly.  It also has more ''rebound'', and becomes less firm than cotton fiber when it's compressed. The Shikibuton Japanese futon is a traditional bed usually used on tatamis and folded during the day to be stored.  The cotton compresses over time and offers a firm comfort.  In the West, these futons are used more often by persons who are looking for a very firm and grounded sleeping surface or travelers that have experienced this type of comfort. They also make a very convenient and stylish guest bed.  
  • Made of two layers of eucalyptus fiber and two layers of cotton fiber at the core.
  • Available in various materials.
  • Can easily be rolled or folded. Two straps are sown at the bottom to tie the futon.
  • Not meant to be used on a futon frame as you would feel the slats.
  • See product description below for details on sizes and colors.
  • Handmade in Quebec.
  • Availability : 1-4 weeks.
