Our Futon Mattresses are sourced direct from the factory here in Devon. All of the futon mattresses are individually hand manufactured to our specifications using combinations of lambswool, bonded felt and rebound polyester or foam, with additional fillings including Coir, Natural Latex and Pocket Springs available depending on your requirements. The futons are covered in a choice of tough cotton drills, chenilles or natural CottonSafe, chemical free, fabrics.
You can select different filling types to suit your requirements on each product page. Making you choice can be complex, so please feel free to call us for advice.
Our traditional pine futon bases are manufactured in Vietnam and Europe to our specification, using a tough Radiata pine to reduce splintering and 'sap' pockets. All our pine bed bases are fully UK manufactured using Scandinavian pine, whilst the hardwood bases use Oak from Vietnam. We have found, over the years, that the quality of futon bases from Vietnam has consistently been of a high quality and the forestation rules governing their production ensure a correct turnaround of replanting. Metal bases are now sourced from a Belgium factory in China!, where the latest manufacturing techniques have provided quality products at big value for money prices.
