How should I care for my Traditional Futon?

Maintainance

Traditional Futons are 100% natural cotton and require daily turning to perform best.

  • 'Flip over' daily (top surface becomes bottom)
  • Put in sunshine once or twice a year on a dry, non-humid day.

Dry atmosphere and sunshine will cause the cotton strands to expand and re-fluff the futon a bit.

Reconditioning

After about 4 years of nightly use, the futon will have compacted enough for us to add another layer of fresh cotton into the existing cover, if you wish.
