Vegan Coir Futomat – Firmest feel
IMPORTANT: Vegan Futomats behave differently from our Vegan pocket-sprung mattresses and WILL settle over time and will therefore feel firmer than a traditional bed mattress. Our Vegan Futomats give a completely different type of sleep experience to a traditional bed mattress. As they are a solid mattress, made from different layers of natural materials. You sleep ‘on’ the surface of a traditional Pocket Sprung Bed Mattress, but you sleep ‘within’ the surface of a Futomat. Also due to the thick layers we use, a degree of settlement will naturally occur over time. This process may be accelerated by constant pressure or lying in a certain area leaving a slight hollow. This is quite natural; over time this will smooth out when the fillings settle evenly.
The Vegan Coir Futomat uses the European method of layering fibres within our unique quilted and ultra-soft ‘Purity’ cover to create a futon-style bed mattress. Being the firmest feel Vegan Futomat, it is idea for people of heavier proportions or for those who prefer a firmer mattress without springs.
The Vegan Coir Futomat contains 4 sheets of the white Cotton Rich Felt, sandwiched with a layer of coconut coir fibre in the centre to ensure the firmest feel available in a Futomat. Coir is a strong and resilient fibre making a perfect core to support the Cotton Rich Felt as a central pad. The spun natural fibres are shaped into a sheet and sprayed with latex as part of the production process. The latex binds the curled fibres which are then pressed and vulcanised in several layers into resilient Coir sheets. This process leads to Coir sheets with a very open and resilient structure.
The Vegan Coir Futomats are then filled with our white Cotton Rich filling which is a mixture between cotton and pure polyester felt. We only use white Cotton Rich Felt rather than the traditional grey felt used by most bed manufacturers, as the grey felt it made from a huge variety of recycled materials including wool or other animal fibres, whereas the white felt is cotton only.
The cotton fibre within the white Cotton Rich Felt is highly breathable. It is baked together with around 20% polyester to help breathability and moisture evaporation. The polyester also helps increase the body of the felt, as cotton alone will ‘matt down’ after time and become hard.
As with all our products, our Vegan Coir Futomats are totally flame retardant chemical free but naturally meets all the UK fire regulations. They are also free from adhesives and glues – which often contain animal products.
The Vegan Coir Futomat is not designed to be used without a bed base, as the natural fibres need to breath. We suggest a slatted base is best and the slats need to be approximately 7.5cm apart. A mattress protector is also advised as the natural fibres within the mattress must not get damp.
All our Vegan Futomats have a one-year manufacturing guarantee and care instructions are provided with your order. Every part of a Futomat is totally recyclable and meets the Stockholm Agreement Compliant for recycling.
