Cotton Mattress

Post by wannamove » Wed, 19 Oct 2011 1:00 am

any idea where I can get these? I know there must be a little shop hidden somewhere where I can custom-order or buy one of these. But I have no clue where.

One of the places I think might have something like this is Little India.
Hoping someone can point me in the right direction

I did some googling and ended up with a couple of online places - I would really love to see it and check out the firmness before buying. So online options might not work

TIA

Japanese futons (the original ones, not what is called the same name in the West!) are cotton mattresses. Most Japanese interior suppliers will be able to help you. One (expensive) example is the Tatami shop at Esplanade.

I did buy one from IKEA but it is not exactly what I am looking for. I am still on the hunt. Will be checking out other places as I explore and discover Singapore

We bought two at Giant and they're still ok about a year later. But we're expecting guests soon so I may replace them. Giant is damned cheap and they have multiple sizes.
