We get it: you love the idea of a traditional Japanese futon. You've got your eye on a gorgeous platform bed, which is the most stylish bedroom furniture on the market today. Yet you're slightly worried about switching to an entirely new type of bed, and you worry that you might miss the softer feel of a traditional mattress.  

Haiku Designs has got you covered

SERENO Organic FutonOur Serenity Plus 9-inch Hybrid Futon has all the benefits of an organic futon with a luxurious 6 inch Botanical Latex Core. It provides the cozy, firm feel of a traditional futon, but boasts the thickness of a regular mattress. We've added an entire layer of GOTS certified cotton and an additional layer of untreated Natural Eco-Wool that is completely free of coloring, flame retardant coatings, or other additives.

The result is a true Hybrid Futon that serves as a futon for your Asian Minimalist Platform Bed, but can also be used with or without a box spring on a non-platform bed (the kind with support slats). Your new hybrid Futon/Mattress will provide complete orthopedic support, and an incredibly comfortable dreamland experience. Our Hybrid Futons are sustainably produced with all natural materials.

All of our organic futons are GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified. GOTS is the processing standard for organic fibers, and is regulated by an independent testing organization. GOTS insures that organic materials meet strict requirements for textiles, including social and ecological criteria.

A Variety of Choices to Suit Your Sleep Preferences

Shiki Organic Futon

Our Natural Organic Futons are available in four configurations, to fit your individual sleep preferences. Our line of Sereno EcoPure and Serenity Plus Hybrid Futons are ideal if you are looking for the firmness and support of a traditional futon, but with a slightly softer and more luxurious feel.

The 7-inch thick Eco Pure Latex & Wool Futon is has a 2 inch core for a firm but comfortable sleep surface, and is manufactured without the toxic foams and chemical flame retardant coatings used in most mainstream manufacturing.

The 8-inch thick Sereno Organic Futon has a 3 inch core and includes an additional inch of Organic Botanical Latex and an additional layer of Organic wool, resulting in a slightly softer, more yielding sleep surface.

Our Organic Cotton Shiki Futon Mat provides a completely traditional Japanese style of bedding. The Shiki mat is made from natural, organic cotton and is wrapped in tufted, heavy-duty cotton material for durability and longevity. It can be rolled up when not in use and moved out of the way, or used as seating – which is the traditional Japanese style.

Organic Futons are Hypoallergenic and Boost Overall Health

All organic futons from Haiku Designs are constructed using all-natural latex, an environmentally friendly, renewable resource sourced from the sap of the Asian Rubber tree. Natural latex provides healthy yet comfortable back support. Our Natural Latex molds to your body's natural contours, resulting in a sublimely comfortable sleep experience.

Organic latex is naturally hypoallergenic; it is resistant to mildew, mold, bacteria and dust mites. When shopping for a new mattress, this is a very important matter to consider. Dust mites are one of the most common allergens, and they can cause serious health issues. Dust mites live and breed in almost all standard mattresses. Dust mites trigger asthma attacks and cause eczema, sneezing, and itchy eyes. They can even cause depression, headaches, and fatigue. Natural mattresses and natural futons are vital for health and general well-being. If you are sleeping on a typical, mainstream manufactured mattress – especially if it is several years old – you are probably dealing with the negative effects of dust mites, and you may not even be aware of it. Switching to a natural, organic futon is one way to instantly improve the quality of the air in your sleeping environment, and boost your overall health.

Our completely organic, natural mattresses and futons are specifically designed to help you get the best sleep of your life. Organic futons contain no petrochemicals or polyurethane foams. They emit zero off-gassing of toxic fumes, so you can rest easy knowing your home environment is free of these dangerous allergens.
