About Shiki Futon

why is our shiki futon so special?

  • all made by hand

    All of our products are throughtfully handmade by experienced craftsmen with skills passed down for generations with pride for over 100 years.
  • cutting

    It is all by done by hand with the help of some necessary tools. This process is import because it provides the base which determines the outcome of the products.
  • sewing

    Creating the outer shell of each product is no mean feat. Making sure that each piece is sewn beautifully and at the right angles, making sure that the products are made to the right proportions.
  • Stuffing

    The stuffing stage is one of the most important parts of the production process. It does not only determine the comfort level of the finished products, but it is also what allows the product to keep its integrity even with frequent use.
  • Finishing

    At the end of the production process, striking the cushion is essential. This step is done to make sure that the cotton filling can spread evenly. Middle stitches are applied to the center of the cushions to keep the cotton filling in place.

why is 100% cotton filling considered as good?

  • "customised futon for my daughter" Wow, what an incredible package to receive in London all the way from Japan, my daughters customised futon. Your service, your traditional craftsmanship and care have been formidable. My daughter is so happy to be sleeping on a comfortable and beautiful work of art. It has been an enjoyable and smooth journey working with you to make my custom sized futon and to have a choice of traditional Japanese fabrics. Thank you so very much.


  • Thanks you Nanako-san for your kind messages. I ordered a shiki futon on your site and everything went smoothly. The futon made in Kyoto is here in Strasbourg and in perfect state (very good packing, regular messages to chek the progress of the parcel, etc.). It is a very fine work and I appreciate it without reserve!!
