Shikibuton Cover, White Cotton
Your Futon Should be Covered to Protect Your Investment!
Traditional style Shikibuton ("mattress") cover. This cover is easily installed and is an essential accessory for protecting your futon mattress. Just as with Western style beds you cover the mattress with sheets, the same is true for futons. These covers are made to fit your futon exactly as Western bed sizes don't match Japanese futons.
Are Covers Necessary? We are often asked if a futon cover is necessary. Our answer is definitely "Yes!" Although our futon fabrics are typically much more comfortable against your skin than Western mattress fabric, it is still highly recommended that you use a cover to protect your investment. The Japanese definitely do not sleep directly on their futon.
