The Eucalyptus Shikibuton is a new and improved version of the traditional all-cotton Shikibuton.

The core is made of two layers of cotton fiber topped by layers of eucalyptus fiber on each side. The eucalyptus fiber is more breathable, eco-friendly. It also has more ”rebound”, and becomes less firm than cotton fiber when it’s compressed. The Shikibuton Japanese futon is a traditional bed usually used on tatamis and folded during the day to be stored. The cotton compresses over time and offers a firm comfort.

In the West, these futons are used more often by persons who are looking for a very firm and grounded sleeping surface or travelers that have experienced this type of comfort.
