Vegan TradLux Futomat – Firm 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.
Our Vegan Traditional Luxury (TradLux) Futomat offers an inexpensive, non-sprung mattress choice for those customers looking for a mattress without springs. In keeping with our philosophy, our Vegan TradLux Futomat is completely chemical free and uses the finest materials to make a natural fibre mattress without the use of any animal fibres or adhesives. These completely fire safe mattresses meet all the UK Fire Regulations without any flame retardant chemicals. Vegan Futomats are designed for bed use only.
The Vegan TradLux Futomat mattress is made using traditional methods of layering natural fibres with a European style zipped and super-soft quilted ‘Purity’ (pure polyester) cover.
In the Vegan TradLux Futomat we use 5 layers of thick high quality rebound white cotton rich felt. This creates a very thick and dense fibre mattress due to the extra thick cotton layers we use. Our Vegan TradLux Futomat is approximately 6” or 15cm deep and has a firm feel.
The white Cotton Rich felt filling is a mixture of cotton and approximately 20% pure polyester. The polyester keeps the cotton fibres from tangling and knotting. It also stops the cotton layers from pulling or breaking apart. The polyester increases loft thickness, allowing more air to pass through the fibres. It reduces dust and helps body moisture evaporation. We choose to use the white Cotton Rich felt rather than the recycled grey felt as this may contain animal fibres. White Cotton Rich felt uses just cotton.
We use no glues, solvents or adhesives during manufacture. Our craftsmen hand-tuft our Vegan TradLux Futomats with polyester pom-poms to keep the luxury fillings securely together.
The Vegan TradLux 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.
