About

Shikibutons are thinner and thus offer less sink / give for a firmer feel.

Shiki comes from the word hiku meaning to lay, and when attached to another word, the futon is now pronounced with a b and becomes buton, forming the word shikibuton.

In Japan, these simple mattresses are part of a style of minimalist living that goes back centuries. According to Handmade Style: Japan, a shikibuton is usually laid out on the floor atop a straw mat called a tatami mat and then, when not being slept on or used as a sitting cushion, folded up and stored in cupboards.

The Shiki is multi-functional, multi-purpose, and there will be no wasted space in your home. What could be more minimalistic?

People think that very soft comfortable beds are better for bad backs, but according to many types of research over the years, it has shown that a firm (but not hard) bed is better for your back. It keeps your spine aligned, and you do not wake up with back pain on a shikibuton.

Natural wool mattress - firmness comparison

*Please note, that there is a joining seam along the width of the FULL, QUEEN, KING and CAL KING sized mattresses because the width of the fabric is 59″. We chose to make the seam along the width because it could be placed at the level of your knees/feet or at the level of your head and under your pillow so it would not be disturbing. If requested, we could make the seam along the length of the mattress, right through the middle of it.

30 reviews for 3″ Wool Mattress (Shikibuton)

  1. Yueh-Han Lin

    The Shikibuton looks fantastic. It smells of country, but it is a mild and pleasant smell. I picked the 100% linen cover and purchased the lambswool cover along with it. In comparison to my old spring mattress I really like how the Shikibuton feels solid. The old spring mattress had springs that had begun to sag, which caused some back discomfort. I’m guessing since the Shikibuton does not use a spring system that’ll it will last much longer and provide more back health. If all goes well I’d definitely purchase from Home of Wool again. Thanks!

    Rosica worked with me to create a custom order. She was incredibly responsive. I love the finished product. Thanks!

    Thanks so much, my mattress arrived and it’s just what I wanted and needed!

  4. Kirsten B

    I’m very impressed with my new Shikibuton, as well as the entire purchase/customer service experience with The Home of Wool. This type of mattress is a major change from a standard mattress, and without having seen or used a Shikibuton it was hard to know whether I would like it or not. After a lot of research I stumbled on this overseas shop my many questions were met with patience and detailed responses. The mattress was made/shipped within the time stated and the only minor annoyance was a one week void in the tracking information once in the hands of Canada Post. Suddenly my new mattress arrived – extremely well packaged and very nicely made. Still getting used to the different sleeping experience, but so far I and my young German Shepherd really like our new bed!
