- Good Value
The resiliency of our natural cotton & wool fibers provides comfort and support when sitting or sleeping.
A Small Wonders futon will last as long or longer than an expensive high quality mattress.
Beneficial to Your Health
A Small Wonders natural fiber futon provides the kind of body support recommended by many health care professionals. Most manufactured futons are constructed using foam. Foam off-gasses formaldehyde. Formaldehyde is not healthy. Our futons are handmade using cotton and wool only.
The cotton batting in our futons is minimally processed. No dyes, bleaches or fungicides are added.
The wool we use is processed locally from a freshly sheared fleece to a luxurious wool batt. First, the wool goes through a 7 step cleaning process using only hot water and a mild detergent. Then it goes through a 3 step rinsing process. After this the wool is dried and formed into 2″ thick batts using a
carding machine. Now it’s ready for us to use in futon making.
Futons Are Our Specialty
We have been making futons, by hand, since 1981.
Most futons on the market are inexpensively mass-produced. These manufactured futons are made with the cheapest possible materials for filling. At Small Wonders we focus on making excellent futons and providing great service.
During the years 1978 thru 1980 our founder, Ramona Meers, studied with a master futon maker in Japan. She learned the traditions and the craft from this master. We continue this traditional craft today. Each of our futons is individually hand made to exacting standards. All of our materials and workmanship are carefully inspected at each step of the process.
We often hear from customers who tell us that they are using and enjoying their Small Wonders futon after more than 10 years of use. College dorm futons get left behind after a couple of years. When you choose a Small Wonders futon you buy it once and enjoy for many years.
This is value.
