How do I know my product is an original Japanese hand-made product
There a lots of products that say they are original Japanese products – most are not. Our products are made in Kochi Japan, one of the 47 Prefectures of Japan.
When your product ships, you’ll see that the shipping document is in Japanese and from Kochi Japan! A traditional hand made Futon doesn’t use any polyurethane foam or filler – as you’ll find in so called ‘Futons’ or those Futon/Lounge combination products – these are massed produced and can only be made cheaply by using cheap products. That is the wrong approach for something you, your friends or relatives will spend 8 hours a night on. Other so called Futons, use other internal material such as springs – but then it’s not a Futon, it’s a mattress!
What can be even worse is that some companies mention ‘we use raw cotton’ – this sounds like a great thing and very healthy – but after awhile it becomes lumpy and awful to sleep on. FutonsJapan.com products also use raw, untreated cotton – but the big difference is we take the time to hand feed this into a cotton combining machine to produce cotton that comes out smooth as silk and we use many layers of this cotton inside our products. Please visit the home page Futonsjapan.com and watch the videos to understand how our products are made and how to take of them.
