Shikibuton is a traditional Japanese mattress that in the west is know as a futon. Shikibuton's are hand made using traditional methods to the highest standards. They are very comfortable and light for easy storage as the rooms often have more than one purpose.
We are often asked if a futon cover is necessary. (Our futon are so beautiful our customers are reluctant to cover them!) Our answer is definitely “Yes!” Although our futon fabrics are typically much more comfortable against your skin than Western mattress fabric, it is still highly recommended that you use a cover to protect your investment. The Japanese definitely do not sleep directly on their futon.
