It was my son’s asthma. This is why I start to consider about Futon.
It was a very cold night, my son, who was 6-year-old, suddenly got apnea caused from allergy, and he was got into hospital by ambulance. He temporary fell into critical condition, but he luckily survived. He was suffering from allergy for several years from then.
And that triggered me to start making Futon which make people, who suffer from allergy, be able to sleep well. First of all, we do not use chemicals which are harmful to our health.
And also, we will choose raw materials and the process of production both of which are not hard on our health.
As we carry on, many customers give us comments "We now sleep very well with Heart's products." Those comments make us manufacture better products.

The difference between our genuine organic and would-be organic in general

The general textile products are fluoresced under the fluorescence examines since chemical additives are remained on them. And generally they use synthetic fibres for sewing yarns, therefore sewing yarns are fluoresced. In contrast to them, we clean up machines before manufacturing. Due to this, the final products are completely no-fluorescent.
