We are Australia's #1 supplier of authentic Japanese futons. We don't sell the cheap Chinese-made polyester futons. There are others that can help you out with those ones (we'll see you in a few months if you choose that option).
Most people that sleep on a futon in Japan do so on top of tatami mats. A Japanese futon consists of two parts: a shikibuton and a kakebuton. The shikibuton is the mattress, and the kakebuton is the quilt (Doona). We import limited quantities of hand-made quality futons from a small family-run business on Shikoku.
We do not sell futons for sofa beds or slatted bases.
Authentic Japanese futons require a solid/flat surface.
These are the only proper futons sold in Australia that are made in Japan.
Both the shikibuton & kakebuton come individually stitched (quilted) and therefore, need to be covered. So don't forget to add one or two to your order. You never sleep directly on or beneath these (unless you own a cleaning business).
Why you should choose a Japanese Futon over a local 'futon' mattress?
Now available - Patterned Quilt Covers
Naomi will make you a patterned quilt cover if requested. You can choose from any design on this page. We will also make them to fit your existing quilt/doona.
What's the difference between these and the other versions?
Traditionally, kakebuton quilts are covered with a white sheet cover (see the image below) which doesn't always show off the pattern. So we have reversed the design and have used the plain white material to go on the outside of the quilt and used the patterned fabric to make the covers with.
