 "  My arm for a pillow,
    I really like myself,
    under the hazy moon. "

Remember the futons you had when you were younger? For the boomer generation, it would be the futon you had in your apartment or dorm room, that you enjoyed while listening to the Allman Brother, Jethro Tull or Pink Floyd.

For Generation X it would be the Futon that you enjoyed while grooving on the Cars or Billy Idol. For younger generations, the futon would be the same and the music background would be… Well, you get the point. 

These futons were great introductory sleeping mattresses and were firm, not very expensive and easy to move around from location to location. These futons similar to traditional Japanese Style Sleep Mats or Shiki Mats and were usually composed of 2-4 inches of cotton and that was all. Very, very firm!

As we grow in years, many people still like the firm sleep, and simple design of the traditional futon they had when much younger, but need a more comfortable, and supportive sleeping surface.

This is the basic idea behind the Eco-Rest Hybrid Futon from Haiku Designs. We call it a Hybrid because we have combined the best of both worlds, the firmness of the futon with the comfort and orthopedic support of a more Western-style mattress. This Hybrid effect makes all the difference and creates a sleep surface that is in short… amazingly comfortable.

We do this by starting with an Eco-Friendly core of Botanical all-natural latex. This can be from 2-6 inches depending on the size of the futon. The latex offers a wonderful slight give to the futon and also lessens the cupping or indention effect that happens with more traditional futons.
