What our futon mattress classic will feel like…
We know that writing about “feel” is subjective.
When you first purchase your futon it is fat and fluffy, giving you a medium soft feel.The nature of the fibers is to compress over time.
Once the futon has been slept on it will develop body impressions, which is normal as it compresses.
This is not a fault.
These impressions will become less prominent as the cotton continues to compress to a level plane.
The length of time it takes to compress depends on the frequency of use and the weight on the futon.
As the fibers compress, the feel of your futon will change giving you a firmer mattress.
About Our Futon Mattress Classic.
For over 25 years, our supplier has been manufacturing futons.The Textile Fiber Pad that makes up the internal structure of the futon is made from a blend of cotton, polyester fiber and a small amount of shredded Polyurethane Foam.
This Textile Fiber Pad is designed to help maintain the loft of the futon. 1)The Textile Fiber Pad is then wrapped in Blended Cotton Batting (93% Cotton, 7% Polyester).
By law, fire retardants are required by the mattress industry.
Here, a small amount of natural Boric Acid is added as an effective, environmentally friendly, safe and approved fire retardant.

After 25 years and three futons, it was past time for a new (fourth futon). We simply prefer futons. There are very few futon stores anymore.
So I searched the internet and found two positive prospects (1) a very good but very expensive organic futon and (2) a very good, with carefully sourced, high quality, and affordable futon at Northern Naturals.
While the NN was not organic, I was impressed with the effort to make the futon as green as possible while maintaining its affordability.
The fire retardant is non-toxic boric acid and the futon itself does not out gas and is made with a fabric- foam and layers of cotton poly batting, and they are made in the USA. My experience with Northern Naturals was a refreshing and memorable buying experience.
We love the queen futon. We think it is our best one yet. We've slept splendidly since receiving it in August 2010. Thank you, Northern Naturals. Ann W., Hansville, WA

I purchased one of your futon mattresses three years ago, and I have to say thank you for it! Even after the filling settled with use, it is still very even and comfortable with no lumps or low spots. It is the most comfortable mattress I have ever slept on and it looks and feels great! I am very pleased both with the quality of the product and with its fast arrival time and I hope that it will last us for years to come. Thank you so much for offering such a great mattress at such an affordable price!
A very satisfied customer.

The futon mattress for my chair arrived yesterday, and I couldn't be more pleased. It is incredibly comfortable--so comfortable, in fact, that Myrtle, the basset hound, has moved from the couch to the chair and now refuses to leave the chair! Thanks for a high-quality product!
