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 clean the cover

In the Karup Design collection you will find serveral fabrics. We have divided up the different fabrics that need special care. Here is how we want to make sure you will have a long life together:

 

COTTON
FABRIC

This fabric is made from
100 % cotton and is available on all futon bed mattresses, which are made to fit all bed frames from Karup Design. We recommend using a sheet to cover your futon bed mattress to make it last and stay neat. This fabric does not tolerate water. If needed please use a dry cloth to wipe it clean.
 

LINEN
FABRIC

Our linen fabric is available on all sofa beds in the Karup Design collection. Linen is a natural raw material with a need of special care. Linen does not tolerate water. If your linen covered futon becomes wet, stains can occur. Therefore, make sure to not clean with water. Use a non-dyed cloth to dry out the area by dapping the wet stain.

CORDUROY
FABRIC

Our newest addition to our fabric collection is our corduroy fabric. This is made from 100 % polyester and is available on our Folk and Grab sofa bed. Our corduroy fabric can be vacuumed and you can use a small amount of dish-washing soap on a damp cloth to clean it. Remember to use a clean and non-dyed cloth for drying up the wet spot.

WOWEN
FABRIC

Our wowen fabric is available on our Uma sofa bed. Like our corduroy fabric the wowen fabric is made from 100 % polyester. To remove dirt you can vacuum it clean and a damp cloth with a small amount of dish-washing soap will remove stains. Make sure not to rub onto the fabric but in stead dab it clean and dry for a longer life time.

MIXED 
FABRIC

Our mixed fabric is made from 80 % cotton and 20 % polyester. This fabric is available for all products in the Karup Design collection in several colors. Since the bigger part of this fabric is made from natural raw material please make sure to use a sheet when sleeping on your product with a mixed fabric. Do only clean with a dry cloth to prevent stains.

OUTDOOR
FABRIC

Our outdoor fabric is made from dralon which is a stain resistant and water-repellent material. In rain the fabrics water-repllent material makes water slide off the surface. This special surface does also make sure that no stains are left onto the product. Please do always bring your OUT products indoors in heavy rain or weather to care for it the best way possible.

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.
