People in the late 1800's were much like we are today. Folks needed their rest after a long day's work. Good sleep has always been the goal for centuries. But a really comfortable mattress? That was a fairly novel idea back in times when mattresses were mostly known as "lumpy". Gold Bond changed that standard, and started a future filled with happy, well-rested customers.
By the end of World War II, Gold Bond was delivering mattresses throughout the East, adding prestigious establishments, leading universities and posh hotels to their clientele. By then, the company had been blending its own cotton for 30 years and a "GOLD BOND" mattress had become an essential bedroom centerpiece. The quality was obvious to fussy homemakers. The comfort was welcomed by weary executives and hardworking tradesmen.
In time the company's contract and retail business continued to grow. People knew the Gold Bond name, so they demanded it. Quality and comfort were always being refined. By now steel innerspring technologies were dominating, yet Gold Bond's pure cotton and hand-made features were beginning to stand alone.
Today, Gold Bond is not only known as a superior quality leader in the mattress industry, it is also world renowned for making the finest futon mattresses. And for starting something entirely new, the modern futon.
All Cotton Mattress
A from NH– Verified Buyer
Really love this product! I have been pairing down my belongings and working on becoming even more-so minimalist than before. This bed was a perfect fit in my transitioning lifestyle, as well as affordable. My back hasn't felt this good in years! Also, don't even need a bed frame. Feels great on the hardwood floor and hardly takes up any space- folds nicely, too, to open up the bedroom and create more work space. Friends who have tested it out say it's one of the most comfortable beds they have slept on!
What a relief!
RIC from WASHINGTON, DC– Verified Buyer
My aching back told me that my 2 year old, queen sized "pillow top" mattress was near the end of its life. But I didn't have another $500 to replace it with a new one. That's when I struck upon the idea of purchasing this queen sized, all-cotton, 4" futon mattress and using it as a "mattress topper."

Got the King size. I have put it directly on the carpeted floor. Its the most comfortable bedding experience.
Exactly what I was looking for!
Arthur from Brighton, MA– Verified Buyer
This futon (twin xl) is exactly what I was looking for, to use on my new tatami bed. It's the perfect weight and thickness with a nice heavyweight cotton canvas covering. I believe it will last a very long time (definitely longer than any spring mattress I've ever owned). I was also very happy with the fact I received it in two days! I highly recommend this futon for those looking for something basic and cost effective.
What I wanted!

The product is exactly as they said and shipped super fast! (2-day for free!)
A really good mattress
Premjeet from Cleveland, TN– Verified Buyer
I ordered this in April. The estimated delivery date was 8+ days but to my surprise I found it in front of my door on the 4th day itself. I pulled in and opened in the evening. Was heavy for me. I used the very same day and from day one I loved it. The comfort is unmatched. Smooth soft firm sleek. Still no issue. Referred a few friends too. They loved it too. This is my first review on any item purchased online. More than happy for the price and the quality I got.
David from Milford, NH– Verified Buyer
This is the same futon that another site is selling for $250. I'm 5' 11" tall and my toes do hang over the end. Not a big deal. The futon's firmness is a bit of a bummer. I'm a side sleeper and after 3 nights I ended up piling a comforter and a few blankets on top of the mattress to offer more padding. I'll be looking for a down/feather mattress topper to solve this issue. Aside from that, I have no other complaints. No smell either.
Could use better support
Amy from Des Moines, IA– Verified Buyer
Using this mattress as a cheap replacement for a Japanese futon. Could use a little more support, but it is decent, and it is extremely comfortable especially with a foam mattress underneath. The queen size is fairly heavy and not something you'd want to move all the time, but it folds easily enough. It does seem to get pretty warm overnight.
Good quality but bad smell!
Judy from Fort Collins, CO– Verified Buyer
The pluses: the quality seems great, it's well made and comfortable/sturdy. The price was also quite good. However, what outweighs all of this is the smell. It's a very pungent and unpleasant smell that does not go away even weeks after purchasing the mattress and airing it out. The smell caused some very bad health symptoms. The symptoms went away after stopping the use of the mattress and removing it from the room. I was so hoping this mattress would work out, but sadly it didn't.
Just what I hoped for in a futon mattress
Rebecca from West Carrollton, OH– Verified Buyer
The shipping was great as it got to me in just a couple of days of ordering and the mattress is very firm and comfortable. It did smell like the plastic wrapper it was shipped in but a couple of days of airing out put an end to that smell. I let it fluff up a couple days before sleeping on it and it poofed up to 6" tall.
