How to care for your futon
Invented in Japan. Designed in Denmark. Handmade in Poland.
A futon is not like any other type of mattress. A futon needs extra love and care due to its many possibilities. Your futon is depending on you. When down or 'worn out', please remember to reshape your futon by flipping it over to reshape the filling. You will immediately sense a change when doing that habitually.
I left a spot on my futon. What can I do?
Futons do not tolerate water. In case of an incident please clean your futon with a damp cloth with a small amount of clear dish washing soap (You should never do this on a linen or cotton fabric as stains can occur). Do not rub but clean your futon by dapping the area from dirt. Finish your cleaning by using a clean and non-dyed cloth to dry out the area. For guidance on how to treat our different fabrics, please scroll down further.

How to care for your TATAMI MAT
A tatami mat is used to place under a mattress or as a yoga mat. Our Wabi tatami mat is designed to be a room divider, but can also be used under a mattress.
All tatami mats must be kept dry in order to avoid any mold/mildew. We recommend that your tatami is only wiped with a slightly damp cloth and no harsh cleaning solutions or vacuum along the weave of the tatami. Going against the weave direction may damage the tatami or cause the dirt to get pushed into it. While using vacuum cleaning, make sure to select the weakest setting.
Tatami mats are sensitive to moisture, avoid leaving carpet or other covering material on top of a tatami mat as it creates a moist environment for mold. We recommend to clean and air out the tatami once in a while. Dry and sunny days are best for airing the tatami mats.
