Looking for the most luxurious organic futon out there? Here you go. Our Organic Cotton Latex & Wool Futon layers organic cotton and wool around a supple, 100% organic, GOLS certified Dunlop latex core encased in organic cotton twill. The latex core gives the Organic Cotton Latex & Wool Futon unprecedented comfort and contouring in a futon style mattress and is hand-tufted for superior longevity. This is not your parents’ futon.
These are, quite simply, the ideal mattresses for anyone who prefers a soft, yet supportive bed and/or is trying to better utilize their space. An organic futon can fold into a couch or lounger, which makes them perfect for studios, small apartments, multipurpose rooms, or a healthy and comfy guest bed. And our Organic Cotton, Latex & Wool Futon is the best organic futon to use in a sofa set-up - the organic latex core reduces creasing where the futon folds; creases can make futons less comfortable when slept on.
All Soaring Heart organic futons are handmade from only the highest quality organic materials using time honored techniques practiced, honed and perfected over the past 30 years. You can expect your new organic futon to last you anywhere from eight to fifteen years, depending upon how well you maintain it. Futons require occasional flipping so that they wear evenly. This reduces body impressions, which, unfortunately, can make a futon less comfortable over time - regardless of the beauty of the impressioning body.
Futons are 7" - 8" thick when new and compress to 6" - 7" with use.

All of our organic mattresses, futons, and shikibutons fully meet federal flame retardant guidelines (1632 and 1633) and pass all test without the use of any synthetic or chemical fire retardants whatsoever; no PBDE's, no boric acid powder, no nothin’. Just organic cotton, latex, and wool. There are no prescriptions needed or hoops to jump through, just peace of mind that you are on the safest, healthiest, and most comfortable mattress you can buy.
At full, original loft, the layers of cotton, latex and organic wool that make up each Soaring Heart futon measure 24” tall, give or take, only compressing down to the more familiar seven inches after passing through the skilled hands of our craftspeople. Once slept on for a while, your new organic futon will settle down to six or seven inches.
We recommend all futons and shikibutons be kept off the floor. Latex and innerspring mattress need to be kept on slats. Not keeping your latex or innerspring mattress on a slatted frame or foundation will void its warranty.
The more air that can circulate around all surfaces of your natural bed, the better. When not exposed to air, cotton can begin to mildew because the temperature difference between your body heat passing through the futon and the relative coldness of a non-breathable surface (the floor, solid plywood, etc...) can allow condensation to build up.
To prevent body moisture from getting into your bed (which can prematurely compress and harden the natural fibers and make your bed lumpy and uncomfortable), always sleep with one of our all natural or organic cotton or wool mattress pads. Don't use a poly-blend pad. They aren't absorbent and can cause you to perspire more during sleep. Wash and dry your natural mattress pad with your sheets. Make sure the pad is completely dry before putting it back on your bed, and your mattress will stay clean and healthy for years to come.
Make sure your organic futon or shikibuton wears evenly (avoiding body impressions) by flipping and rotating it regularly, so you end up sleeping on all different parts of the bed equally. We recommend doing this once a week for the first month, then once every other week thereafter.
A couple times a year, on a sunny day, put your futon, shikibuton, or topper outside in the sun for an hour or two on each side. It's like giving your bed a natural dry-cleaning. The sun fluffs and revitalizes the fibers, discourages microbial growth, and evaporates any residual moisture. Does not apply to latex - latex can be deteriorated by sunlight.
Even if you lovingly follow all the steps listed above, there may come a day when your natural bed doesn't feel quite as comfortable as it originally did. In that case, feel free to click the button below to send us information about your product so we can schedule a revitalization time. Often times, all that's necessary to bring new life to your faithful futon is a few new layers of cotton or wool, and that can cost significantly less than a new bed. We do need to see it in person so we can assess what needs to be done, but once we figure it out we can usually finish the revitalization that same day.
For customers outside the Seattle Area who want to ship the item for revitalization services, simply put the item in a box, pay for shipping to our Seattle location and we will pay the shipping to return your revitalized item to you .
