Latex Futon Mattress
Our 63 Latex Futon Mattress is made from 6 layers of cotton batting and 3 layers of Organic Dunlop Latex. The cotton in this futon mattress is not organic. Casing is made of non-removable canvas white and it is polyester for durability and longevity. This futon is available in all sizes.
It is a great all-rounder for use as a sofa bed or as a mattress. Traditional futon mattress is made of many layers of cotton which makes the futon very heavy and very lumpy. In most of our mattresses, we add layers of foam to reduce the weight, cost, as well as better structure. In this futon mattress, we use Latex for people who are more concerned with the environmental impact of foam.
Our futon mattress matches three layers of organic dunlop latex with six layers of 100% cotton batting to provide the perfect balance of value and comfort. These layers are then tufted in place to keep all the batting secure and ensure a long-lasting product.
Being made of mostly natural fibers and with little latex, futons require more maintenance and need to be flipped at least once every other week. A futon mattress is generally on the firm side of the mattress spectrum and with proper care should last between 8 and 15 years.
There are 6 layers of cotton batting inside this mattress. This is the part that gives the lumpiness to the futon mattress. The thickness of it is not easy to measure due to the fluffy nature of the cotton batt, but it is roughly 0.5" for each layer.
Since there are lots of cotton layers in this futon, in the long run you see this mattress compress more than other models with fewer layers of cotton.
Preference for Latex is due to its natural properties. Latex is coming from a rubber tree’s sap. If you cut the three similarly to maple syrup production, you get white sap from the rubber tree. Putting the sap into a process and the result is latex which you can make a mattress from. There are also synthetic and a mix of synthetic and natural latex in the marketplace. We only use natural latex in this futon mattress.
Casing of this mattress is a canvas-like white fabric that is %100 polyester for durability. This casing acts as a cover to hold the content which is layers of foam and latex. In the middle of the mattress, you will find tufting roughly 10” apart to keep the layers from shifting around.
You can not take this casing off because of the permanent tufts.
As we said it above, the casing of this mattress is non-removable. If you wish to use your latex futon mattress as a sofa, you may need to buy a futon cover separately. You do not need a futon cover if you want to use your futon as a regular sleeping mattress. In which case you only need to buy bedding sheets as you would for a normal mattress.
A mattress is folded in half and one or two strings keeping it in place and then the whole thing is inside a durable plastic bag.
