Cotton Cloud Futons

Lotus Mattress - Made With Organic Latex (Local Pick Up)

$1,935
Cotton Cloud’s latex mattresses are made with 100% Certified Organic Latex sap that is safely harvested from the Hevea Brasiliensis tree. This process is Eco-friendly and is similar to harvesting Maple Syrup.  Latex provides the perfect balance of comfort and support so you can enjoy deep, sound sleep night after night.

2" Soft Latex Layer
6" Medium or Firm Latex Layer

The organic latex sap comes from certified plantations which are pesticide free and use no chemical fertilizers for a minimum of four years before certification. The products are manufactured in accordance with GOLS standard (Global Organic Latex Standard) and the soil is tested by the Control Union. Control Union is a Netherlands based company, the authoritative body for performing organic certifications for USDA/ NOP (Natural Organic Program of the US Agriculture department) and for European Union Organic production certification.

This shell requires a doctor's prescription when placing the order due to it not containing any fire retardants according to the 16 CFR Part 1633.

Part of the beauty of wool is that is acts as a natural flame retardant, so no other chemicals are added and no doctor's note is required.

* We make our latex mattress shells with a 3 sided zipper in order to properly place the natural latex mattress inside.  The shells are not meant to be removed or washed. We highly recommend using one of our quilted wool mattress pads for extra protection.

About Latex
Each rubber tree weeps 15 grams of latex daily. A Queen size latex core needs the daily output of 2500 trees, spread over 12 acres of rubber plantation, providing a living to eight rubber tappers. Interestingly, these rubber trees account for the removal of 143 metric tons of Carbon Dioxide from the environment in 1 year. This is a genuine contribution to the environment.

Quality Control
Checking the hardness, weight as well a final visual check, our 16 point Quality control procedure assures consistent quality from raw materials to final product.

Dunlop Overview
The Dunlop process is the most natural method of producing mattresses. In this process, the latex sap is collected from rubber trees, then frothed in a centrifuge. The latex is then poured into a mold and baked at a low temperature. Latex products made using the Dunlop process are typically more dense than those made using the Talalay process and may have one side that feels a little firmer than the other due to the heavier latex particles sinking to the bottom during the baking process.

Benefits of Latex
Latex is naturally hypo-allergenic, breathable and provides superior orthopedic support. It is dust mite resistant and bed bugs do not thrive well in latex because it is a material that does not promote growth and discourages them from breeding. Latex naturally conforms to the shape of your body automatically reducing pressure points. It rarely needs turning and is durable with most latex manufacturers offering a 10-15 year warranty.

Talalay vs. Dunlop - Which is Better?
The major difference between the two processes is what happens in the mold just prior to the initial latex curing stage. In the Talalay process, only a small amount of latex compound is poured into the mold. Air is extracted to distribute the foamed liquid inside the mold and other synthetic fillers or additives may be added. The mattress core is flash frozen to lock the cell structure in place and to prevent the particles from settling. In the Dunlop latex process, the molds are filled to the rim, air is not extracted, no additives are needed and there is no freeze stage. Therefore, the latex cell structure is less "airy". This process produces a heavier product that lasts longer.

Futon mattresses come in all shapes and sizes, and we can even craft custom sizes for boats, RVs etc.  The most common sizes we sell are Twin, Full & Queen, standard mattress sizes. Below is a sampling of the standard sizes we carry and pictures showing them in action. As always If you have any questions or just need more info let us know, we are here to help!

 

We fill our futons with a set formula but because batches of cotton can vary and we make our futons by hand, they don't always start their life at perfect mattress dimensions. Usually a futon will begin up to three inches shorter than industry standard. As the fibers inside compact, they spread outward often causing a gain of 1-3 inches. This compaction process can take up to a year to accomplish.
A note on ordering: unfortunately we cannot stock everything in our catalog, most futons are made to order. This can take up to 2 weeks for your new futon or mattress to become available. If you need something right away, please call the store and ask us to check inventory before placing your order online. Otherwise, we will call you when your order is available for pick up.

Couch Frames - Choosing The Right Size


The type and level of use you anticipate for your futon will determine the type of frame to best suit your needs. Futon frames generally come in two broad varieties: folding frames and stationary platform beds.

Platform Bed Sizes

Single and Twin size mattresses are the same, and are usually used for kids' rooms or solitary sleepers. Full and Double size mattresses are the same. Double beds are only 15" wider than twins, which may not be adequate for 2 adults. Queen size mattresses are our most popular size for platform beds. The 60" width comfortably accommodates most adults.
This is the widest standard bed available, providing enough room for 2 large adults, plus the family dog! This is the longest standard bed available, making it ideal for taller people, and only 4 inches narrower than the King size.



Futon Covers - Choose The Right Size


 

In order to ensure you get a futon cover that fits your futon mattress, it is important that you measure your mattress correctly.

To accurately gauge the size of your futon mattress, measure all three dimensions. length, width, and height (height can also be referred to as loft or depth).

Measure the longest side (length) of the futon as accurately as you can from corner seam to corner seam. Then measure the width and height in the same manner.

Most of the covers Cotton Cloud Futons sells are designed to fit a 6" thick mattress. If your mattress is thicker or thinner than these measurements, let us know and we will have a cover custom made to fit it correctly.

Be as accurate as you can when measuring, the size of the futon may vary with age and usage. Use the standard sizes below to identify what size futon mattress you have.

They can be used on a tri-fold frame, on a 39" chair, or on a platform bed.

 

Full and Double size mattresses are the same. They can be used on bi-fold, tri- fold frames or platform beds. Queen size mattresses are most commonly sold for platform beds. They can also be used as a sofa on a bi-fold frame, but the back of a queen size futon will stick up about 6" higher than a full size futon, which is sometimes awkward. They are also a bit more difficult to operate than full size mattresses. A queen size futon can also be used on a tri-fold frame to make an oversized chair.
A 39in futon chair frame is the same width as a twin. You can choose to have a 39x21 inch cushion made for the ottoman. 54in Futon love seats look like a minature sofas. A 54in futon frame is the same width as a Full. With the use of 54in loveseat built in ottoman a full size sleeping surface [54"x75"] can be achieved. You can choose to have a 54"x21" cushion made for the ottoman. An ideal choice when you want a comfortable oversize chair that also provides an extra full size bed, with out taking up very much space.
