About

I started Cotton Cloud Futons in 1981, when I was 17 years old. I guess two driving forces combined to inspire me to start on a journey that, 26 years later, is going stronger than ever: my parents.

My mom was always a Do-It-Yourself type of woman; it was the 70s, and women were coming into their own power. She was also the single mother of two kids, and had to get inventive to make ends meet. My dad was also very creative and encouraged me to always examine the world around me and talk about what I saw. Their support of my creativity and my own way of looking at the world gave me the foundation I needed to begin the adventure that would one day be Cotton Cloud Futons.

Cotton Cloud has always been a labor of love. Ever since I can remember, I have had a very close connection to nature, and a deep respect for the planet with which we’ve all been entrusted. By chance, I took a class on futon-making, and from that moment on, it was clear to me that making beds out of cotton provided the perfect synergy of art, craft, and mindfulness for the Earth. At first, I was living in a little farm house out in the woods, making covers on a treadle sewing machine and building each mattress by hand. The whole experience was very zen, and it gave me the chance to brainstorm and try different combinations of materials and construction methods.
