Thin cotton organic mattress, shikibuton like made in Japan.


affordable organic mattress

Our Shikibuton is made for organic sleeping retaining the core construction of an Asian cotton mattress. If you are comparing organic cotton to non-organic cotton, the one factor to remember is cotton is by far the largest user of pesticide across all crops.  Most cotton mattresses will have a musty smell, this is due to the non organic cotton and mixing chemical fills like polyester fibers. 


Organic Wool

All our organic cotton mattress are made with wool, this made in japan style shikibuton is also from Portland organic wool. The original shikibuton does not have any wool hence when they are imported into US there is a chemical layer of fire sock added. Our shiki mattress passes fire standards by using natural wool, which is not just premium but also expensive. We do also do not have to use poly foam boric acid to meet fire tests, these are pure shikibutons even better than those made in Osaka.  The wool is not  virgin wool or Joma wool but 100% certified organic wool blended from multiple sheep breeds. Wool is  resitant to moisure and ensure heat is disspirated evenly, it is very good for allergies. 


back pain mattress

The top layer of the shiki is an organic cotton canvas fabric imported from India, this is truly how cotton mattress are made and need to be slept on. The finish is a bit rough yet soft, made like a canvas and it is absolutely sturdier than tickings or fabric found on other mattress. If you read our description of the Japanese organic futon or Indian cotton mattress, you know that it is a beautiful GOTS organic cotton ticking.The wool is layered behidn the ticking and ensures a soft backing to the fabric. 

Just like in Japan and India, shiki is... 


Just like our thicker cotton mattress, these are also handmade and made to order.  This is a two sided mattress, which means you can flip it over for the same comfort and same feel. There is a heavy duty zipper running across one side of the mattress that gives you a view of the filling inside, note this cover cannot be removed.  There are multiple hand stitched threads on top, also called tufts, that help to hold the cotton wadding and the wool together. Cotton mattresses are known to lump up hence this ensure a continous smooth surface that does not shift. We always share the guidance that retain the life of your mattress by layering on an organic cotton mattress pad.
